Why I ride: Cancer is something I have been very familiar with all my life, even as a child. Every female on my maternal side has had cancer and/or tested positive for the BRCA gene except for me. In 2004, I lost my mother to leukemia after a long battle with breast cancer. I am here to honor them and "ride" for a cure for all cancers.
"I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer."
