The Ride for Roswell is an annual event that helps raise money for cutting-edge cancer research and patient care programs that benefit cancer patients through out the United States.
2019 will be the 13th year I ride. Riding for me is personal. My family, like many families, has suffered more than our share at the hands of this terrible disease:
- In April 2007, my mother-in-law passed away after spending 9 months at Roswell for leukemia treatment. She had been previously diagnosed with breast cancer. Her care while at Roswell was tremendous and very supportive.
- In June 2011, my mother lost an 18 month battle with uterine cancer.
-In December 2010, one of my high school students passed after battling a rare form of ovarian cancer at age 15. Her story and inspiration lives on with many who knew her, but her story was cut far too short.
- In December 2015, two of my brothers were diagnosed with skin cancer.
-In February 2016, my sister-in-law's mother lost her battle with kidney cancer.
- 2017 my friend was diagnosed with testicular cancer.
-In March 2018, my father died from bone cancer.
The money raised will allow Roswell to continue to fund programs aimed at eradicating this disease. Please help support this cause so people can overcome cancer.
