In late 1989, I was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma and I spent Christmas of that year as a patient at Roswell Park Cancer Institute under the care of Dr. Karakousis and his staff. The doctors, nurses, and entire staff at RPCI were amazing during my stay and provided unbelievable care. I know that without their expertise and dedication I wouldn't be here today. I am dedicated to helping the hospital any way I can to find cures for all types of cancer and that can only be done by rasiing the necessary funds to do the necessary esearch. The Ride for Roswell is an amazing event that brings the entire region together for a common cause and we really need your support. No one can fund the research alone, but if we all give a little, we will see a time when cancer is eradicated from our lives. Please consider helping us in reachiing that goal, by making a donation to my fund raising page.
