We see the effects of cancer every day and it’s a tremendous honor to be able to participate in C2C4C and use my “actions” to provide support in the fight against cancer. I'm riding for all my family, friends and colleagues affected by cancer. You all know who you are…this one’s for you!
At the top of the list are my Grandfather and Mother. I had a special friendship with my Grandfather, who lost his battle to pancreatic cancer, robbing us of many years together.
This ride will mark my mother’s 30 years of cancer survivorship after breast and colon cancer. She’s one of the biggest influences in my life and, along with my father, taught me that I could achieve my goals through focus and perseverance, no matter the obstacles. Her fight, as well as all cancer patients’ fights, are a true inspiration to that life lesson.
Thinking of cancer patients and what they go through inspires me every day. Through this ride, I hope we surpass our fundraising goals, educate and inspire others to engage in the fight, and give patients the hope and confidence that we will continue fighting to improve their futures.
My message to cancer
Get out, you're not welcome here! Leave our family and friends alone!
