WHY I RIDE

Like many who will visit my page, cancer continues to impact our family and friends.

My mother has been a breast cancer survivor for several years and this year was diagnosed with merkel cell carcinoma skin cancer. Fortunately, she caught both of these early and continues to be in remission. Given their family history, my girls are at a higher degree as risk for breast cancer as not only did my mother have breast cancer, their mother, aunt and other grandmother also had breast cancer.

Just weeks before this years PTC ride, one our close friends was diagnosed with cancer as well. We are still waiting to learn of the type and extent of his cancer. This year we have also had several or our friends at work diagnosed and while I wish we I could say we had a cure for each one of them, we have lost two this year.

Raising money for cancer research over the past 9 years with Pedal the Cause is one of the ways I feel I can have an impact for my family, friends and community in the battle against this deadly disease.
