I first rode in Pelotonia in 2009 as an OSU graduate student. It was wonderful to fight against a disease that stole my aunt and took away my best friend’s hair, teenage years, independence, and more.
Then I rode in Pelotonia as a survivor. It was an entirely different experience, and I am not even going to try to capture the profound affect it had on my fight against cancer. I will say that I will ride in Pelotonia every year for as long as I can.
While I was "gearing" up for Pelotonia 2015, still bald from chemo and healing from a radical mastectomy, the loss of a pregnancy in order to seek treatment, and my body altered forever, I discovered the Midnight Train from Georgia Peloton.
I am so grateful to have fellow survivors and cancer fighters here in my hometown of Athens, GA, that care just as much about this ride as me. We talk, we ride, we share stories, we support each other, AND we take action in the one way we can to beat cancer.
We ride in the hope that one day we will live in a cancer free world. I believe this world is possible, and I believe the innovative research that Pelotonia funds will be one of the ways we get there. You can read about our fight here, too!
I've healed both mentally and physically faster from the ravages of cancer and its treatment because of Pelotonia. It is an amazing event to be a part of because it allows me to take action, to work with others toward a common goal, and to connect to other survivors and fighters.
This year I am dedicating my ride to my mother in law, Linda Heath. Cancer stole her from her friends and family in April 2018.
Thank you for donating to my ride; I am incredibly grateful for your support.
