Riding again - This year with heavy heart - just two months away!
This time last year several of my friends were in the 'Fight' stage against different types of cancer. Seems every day we hear about someone affected and to be honest, I never thought I'd know so many friends of mine going through this battle.
Not every challenge is won. Sadly I am sharing that one, an incredibly brave, generous and loving soul passed away in March of this year. Last year she was the person who inspired me to ride. Her battle with Triple Negative Breast Cancer (http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/diagnosis/trip_neg) was incredibly difficult and yet, through it all she tried to educate us all about the unknowns of this disease.
So with a heavy heart I ride more for her this year than last. I continue to do this ride to challenge myself, my mental and physical self, and succeed in completing over 200 kms in two days. Last year the weather was hot, was windy, was exhausting but I did it and I'll do it again
Whether you would consider donating to support me, to memorialize a lost loved one, to create a better future for the next generations, or for another personal reason, the end result is the same: to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime.
Thank you for considering supporting me in this ride!
