Most of you know that I have been trying to do my part in the fight against breast cancer, and a cancer free world for more than 25 years now.
And... I just learned about two more family members, sons of two of my first cousins, who were both diagnosed in the last two months. One is 25 and the other 33.
Too many loved ones gone too soon. And I don’t even mention the countless friends who I have seen suffer and battle cancer. Some making it through. Some not.
We can and have to do something about this!
It's imperative we fund the best work to find the cures and solutions to end cancer. We have to do it quickly and with urgency. We have to look for new ideas. We have to be creative.
I feel strongly about the power the Pelotonia community and team have to make these very things happen.
In 9 short years, Pelotonia has already raised over $160 million for life-saving cancer research and because of very generous funding partners, every dollar raised by these participants goes directly to cancer research
While I will not be riding a bike during this year’s ride in August (I leave that up to Yianni!) I have committed to be a Virtual Rider and to raise $5,000.
For my siblings Vicki, Jorge, Bertin and Idania. And for countless friends, who we have lost and who are fighting today, join me in making as big an impact as we can!
Please donate and watch every single one of your dollars go to work! Let me repeat this very important fact...
100% of your donation will go directly towards life-saving cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center-James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute.
