I am riding In Memory of Greg Morris, Helen Howard, Michael Clarkin, and Donald Mengersen.


A flashbulb memory is a highly detailed, exceptionally vivid "snapshot" of the moment and circumstances in which a piece of surprising and consequential (or emotionally arousing) news was learned about. One such memory for me occurred on November 7, 2006 when I received a call from my mom telling me my dad was having emergency surgery due to colon cancer. This was the beginning a long, traumatic road that involved multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, secondary primary cancer diagnosis (throat cancer), radiation, and numerous complications. Last year my dad's cancer journey came to an end. This year I start a new journey in his name and other friends and family members whose journey has come to an end because of cancer.
