I am participating in The Ride For Roswell on Saturday, June 23! This is much more than a bike ride for me — it’s my commitment to the fight to end cancer.
My first exposure to cancer was when my aunt Mary Kay was diagnosed with breast cancer and passed away at the age of 50. After that, I've watched as family members and friends have had to cope with the disease. Some winning their fight and others fighting until the end.
Most recently my friend's daughter was diagnosed with cancer. She started her chemo just a few days before her 16th birthday. She was treated by the wonderful staff at Roswell and her family received wonderful support. Heidi rang the bell a few months ago and is returning to her life as a typical teenager, getting ready for prom.
For those reasons and so much more, please help me raise critically needed funds for cutting-edge cancer research and compassionate patient-care programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Your donation to my ride might provide the funding that the researchers at Roswell Park need in order to investigate new treatment options that can save lives. These therapies can provide cutting-edge treatment choices to patients in our own community and in cancer centers worldwide.
You can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting my fundraising efforts. In fact, for every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach (and exceed) my fundraising goal. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
