$0 My Goal: $500.00

This the first time for me doing the Pelotonia and pushing myself to do something new. But this year I wanted to do something for the people in my life that I have lost or that have fight cancer. One of the people that I lost was my mother and that was one of the hardest times of my life. 

 

When I was just out of high school getting ready to start my college journey. I remember my mom being told she had Lupus and Fibromyalgia, then told she couldn't work another day. This was hard on her being she had always worked and this extra pressure on my dad being now there was only one income. Fast forward 16 years later and I watch her have great days and bad days, but then in January 2018, she was back in the hospital that is when we found out that she had bone cancer. By April 2018 we lost her and my family's lives were turned upside down.

So this year for her and others in my life I will ride to raise money in hopes of the future.
