Story

Why I Am Riding in the ACS Pink Cycling Challenge to Support the American Cancer Society

Five years ago, I had my first pre-40 baseline mammogram. Expecting to get a letter in the mail saying everything looked fine, I got a call the next Monday asking me to come in for a biopsy. Turns out I had Stage 2 breast cancer. I had a "triple positive" cancer, and there was a relatively new chemotherapy developed to treat exactly that. Within three months, the MRIs showed it go from 2cm to barely visible. I am very grateful for the research that went into developing my treatment. 

For the first time in history, the American Cancer Society's mission is at risk - including their ability to fund cancer research. The American Cancer Society 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 and honor those touched by cancer by raising funds for groundbreaking research and services for people dealing with cancer. I'm also participating to inspire hope for those facing the disease and raising money for the American Cancer Society's event to help save lives from cancer.  I hope you'll consider signing up too.

Funds raised support cancer patient programs and groundbreaking research that can help save lives. This event also celebrates over 15.5 million cancer survivors nationwide. 15.5 MILLION. That's huge. That's why I'd love your support. Will you join me? And if you can't would you be so kind as to make a donation?
