This Ride's for you, Mom!
They say time heals all wounds. I disagree. My brothers and I lost our mom Wendy suddenly to cancer when we were bratty teens fighting over dial up Internet. What a rude awakening to suddenly lose the one person that you’ve never known how to live without. And Wendy wasn’t like a regular mom; she was a cool mom – a comedian, a storyteller, and our best friend. It has been seventeen years and I still have moments of feeling incomplete, hopelessly sad, and jealous of people who get to enjoy (or even bicker with) their moms. She has never met my #brownliving husband, my schtinky dog, or most of my amazing friends.
Doing a 200+km bike ride will not change any of this... BUT mothers have stood in front of me and told me they’re alive today because of experimental cancer treatment funded BY THIS RIDE. That’s your $50 donation translating to millions of impactful dollars that save lives. If we can play even a small part in curing someone’s cancer, or better yet wiping out this godforsaken disease entirely... well that’s a big no brainer! This Ride has granted me a productive arena for my grief. It has put a healthy spin on my vindictiveness and allowed me to believe we CAN AND WILL conquer cancer in our lifetime. It has let me be a part of something bigger. JOIN ME - Please donate!
