Local Cancer Fundraiser

Santa Ynez, CA -

When I first heard that the Lance Armstrong Foundation was sponsoring five rides around the country this spring and summer to raise monies for cancer research, I immediately realized it was a cause that I could rally behind!

So, I setup a Cancer Fund website to raise a target of $15,500 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation in the next five months. Please visit it by Clicking Here.

Having good friends that fought and won the battle and others that are currently fighting every day to win the battle against cancer, I wanted to do anything and everything I could to help. It seems that everyone has someone they know that has been affected by this terrible disease. One day you're out there riding your bike and feeling great, and the next day your whole life is turned upside down - no more scenery rolling past, no more warm breezes in your face, no more riding til the sun goes down; everything stops and this cancer takes over.

How fortunate for those of us that are blessed to never have to experience this and devastating to those that do. By doing my part in helping to raise funds for research, there is the chance that someday we may never have to live in fear of our own diagnosis.

Your dollar may be the one that finally helps to find this cure! Thanks from the bottom of my heart for supporting me and I will keep you posted on my fundraising and on my ride!!
