9th year in a row. No big deal.
WOW. This will be my 9th year in a row riding against cancer. I don't know if I've done anything this long. I mean thats like longer than high school was. Longer than any job position I've kept. Why do I keep on subjecting myself to the slog of training and fund raising every year? Well it almost is the least I could do. It's no big deal really as this is nothing compared to families living with cancer go through.
Leukemia takes lives of children and adults every day but at the same time, there are many survivors that are in remission and doing very well.(Thanks to funding going in to top notch treatments and research into why they don't work for everyone) The most common cancer for children and young people is leukemia, and the most common type of leukemia is called either Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia, or Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
My father in law lost his battle because the current treatments just wouldnt work for him, hopefully with funding we can find a treatment for everyone.
Hopefully we won't be riding through another insane storm this year. Seriously, last year was the hardest ride I have ever done in my life! And I do Gran Fondo's!!!
