|WHY I RIDE:|
My Mom. Fifteen years ago, my Mother passed away from Breast Cancer. She had battled cancer when I was very young and survived. Then at her 3.5 year mark, she was rediagnosed and passed away when I was seven years old.
My Mother and Father prepared me very well for her passing by always being very candid with me about what she was going through. She held strong for my Dad and I, and I will always be thankful that she was able to be present in my life for as long as she was. Even though she is not physically here with me now, I know that she is with me spiritually.
Thus, the reason I fight back against cancer is because of my wonderful, awesome Mother who taught me to view death as a celebration of life, instead of a mourning of what has been lost.
My Aunt Louise. At the beginning of March 2013, my Aunt Louise was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This lady is one of the most kind-hearted and constantly-loving people I know. All of my memories of my Aunt are filled with lady bugs (her favorite bug), smiles, and sweet conversations.
I ride for my Aunt Louise now because I want to help give her hope that she can overcome cancer. She has a long road ahead of her, and I want to do the most I can to support her and show her encouragement and love!
I ride for a cancer-free future!
