As many of you know, for the past three years I have road in a charity bike ride under the team name “Imagine” after I saw this power statement, “imagine a world without cancer.” As someone who has lost a family member to cancer and who has another who recently finished his treatment, I want everyone to read this slogan and fully appreciate what it could mean to you, me, and our families. When I did, it became my dream and one that I will not been able to forget it – Just imagine.
When I heard about the Sunflowers to Roses Ride, a bike ride that benefits the KU Cancer Center, Cancer Action, the Lance Armstrong Foundation and the Sunflowers to Roses Organization, I had to register and participate. There are so many reasons why I am doing this. There are so many things to say in such a short section. For me it all boils down to the following;
1. I am doing this in memory of my Aunt Venesa who passed away from breast cancer,
2. I am doing this in honor of my Dad who is a recent survivor, and
3. I am doing this in hopes that my family, or anyone else’s family for that matter, will never have to go through the same pain and suffering my family has gone through ever again.
I need to raise at least $100 to participate in the Ride, but my goal is to raise $2,000. It’s a big goal, but I’m taking a big step. So, I invite you to join me in the fight against cancer by making a donation. Make it on behalf of a friend or loved one if you like and I will ride for them as well. Your donation will help fund important cancer research, and every pledge will bring us one pedal stroke closer to a cure!
Dare to imagine a world without cancer…
