My Story

Why I'm Riding in the ACS Pink Cycling Challenge to Support the American Cancer Society....
The American Cancer Society's mission is at risk - including their ability to fund cancer research. The ACS needs to be here to help patients face cancer with comprehensive support, but they need our help to be able to do so. Every dollar will truly make a difference right now.
Taking part in this event gives me the chance to make a difference by raising funds for research and services for people dealing with Breast Cancer. Of those whose lives have been touched now include me...this year's rides will be even more personal....On March 2 of this year I was diagnosed with early stage Breast Cancer. Like anyone with a cancer diagnosis, I was not expecting this…I was in shock, scared, terrified of what was to come. When the doc said "you have Breast Cancer" those words were deafening. I cried, I felt helpless. My life from that day forward changed forever. 
All this, then a pandemic hit. My surgery was in question, but my great team of military doctors insisted on treating me. After 2 surgeries followed by radiation therapy, I'm now on the other side. But this will live with me forever... My body isn't where it was before Breast Cancer, but that won't stop me.   I'm back in the gym and on my bike, continuing to strengthen my body to train for October’s bike rides. Well, I did it!  I not only cycled 150 miles but I exceeded that goal! And being just 3 months out of radiation treatment I feel this is a huge accomplishment.
Funds raised support cancer patient programs and research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That's huge. I wasn't expecting to ever call myself a Breast Cancer “survivor”,  but I am, riding for myself and all women. That’s why I pushed myself to do something bigger than I to change the course of this disease that affects us all.  That's why I'd love your support. Will you join me and consider making a donation? No amount is too small!
Your support means more than I could ever express. Cancer started this fight....and I'm finishing it!
Much love and gratitude,
