WHY I'M INSPIRED

I was diagnosed with cancer (a liposarcoma in my neck) in March 2018. Surgery and radiation (during which I couldn't eat solid foods for five weeks) were not fun -- but it was bearable thanks to my wife, kids, great support from running and biking friends (including Drs. Tanya Wildes and Andy Kates) and others. More than four years later, I'm cancer-free and have no long-term side-effects.

Many people (including my good friend Sandi Essner) have been afflicted much more severely than I was. I am riding for Sandi, Susan, Gayle, Joe, Mike and others in an effort to someday eliminate this horrible disease.
