Thank you for visiting my page!

Last year I rode for kids with cancer. As we all know a cancer diagnosis is one of the hardest things to endure. But, when we hear of a child who is faced with cancer, our heart hurts and we pray all the harder for a good outcome.

This year, I'm focused on Julia. In 2014 our Cancer is Gross TEAM sponsored this little four year old girl through Pedal the Cause's Ride for a Child program. It was an amazingly positive experience for each and every member of our TEAM and, hopefully, we gave Julia and her whole family some experiences that took their minds off of the serious issues facing them.

I've decided to ride for Julia again this year. Julia is now 9 years old and, regrettably, she is still in a very difficult battle with the evil foe.

Julia has endured constant chemo, scans, weekly blood draws, surgeries, pneumonia from chemo, no school for months, 19 days of high fever and much more.

Every update from her Mom and I sit on pins and needles. Prayers for Julia continue.

When Julia recently screamed at God you can take this away all you have to do is speak it her Mom said: I know exactly how she feels. I've said the same thing! With tears in my eyes I said Juls you are special.
You are strong, you are courageous, you are a warrior. God has chosen you and he has a big plan for you little girl.

Pedal the Cause has funded 31 pediatric projects to find treatments for childhood cancer.

Our TEAM, Cancer is Gross, believes that cancer research is the answer. We ride our bikes and raise money for cancer research so that more cures can be found and fewer families will have to go through this.

Won't you join us?
