This will be my tenth year as a rider for this amazing cause! Recently, I climbed Mount Kilimanjaro with support from amazing people. Without their support, it would not have happened. It is like finding a cure for cancer. I need your support.
There are many reasons why I ride. Stopping the hurt on family’s faces when they are told, “Your child has cancer.” Several years ago, I transferred a child from one of the local hospitals to the cancer agency. I asked him, “How are you feeling?’ He tells me,” I feel great!” I looked behind and I see his mother biting her lip with a worried look. At the cancer agency, the mother was directed to another room. I then asked the child, “How are you really doing?” He looks at me and says, “I hurt a lot. I can’t tell my mom because I know it hurts her.” I bite my lip, turn away and tears start flowing. I heard a brave child scream inside. I want to stop the hurt. One child with cancer is one too many. This is my way of fighting this disease! Please help and thank you for your support!
