WHY I RIDE

In 2001, at age 24 years old I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. I was terrified, sick and just in denial. I had my right ovary and tube removed and went through 6 rounds of chemotherapy. I am a 20 year ovarian cancer survivor I truly believe I was diagnosed with cancer to help others going through not only ovarian cancer but other cancers as well. I continue to struggle with mental cancer and PTSD from my experience. What happens if I get cancer again? I was so young so I could get cancer again in my lifetime. Dr. David Mutch and his staff continue to help me through my journey by providing excellent care when it is needed. Also, Siteman Cancer Center has provided me with counseling services during some of the most darkest times in my life when the PTSD was so bad it took over my life. I am proud to raise money for Siteman so they can continue to help women going through this horrible disease. I RIDE for all the women who are currently in treatment for ovarian cancer, who have passed from ovarian cancer and for all the survivors. ROCK ON TEAL SISTERS!!! ROCK ON!!!!My Link
