I will be riding in the annual Breast Cancer Ride on August 13, 2016! As many of you probably know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2015 at age 33. After a bilateral mastectomy, I am doing quite well and am grateful that I was able to benefit from early detection. Sadly, breast cancer has affected my family in multiple ways. My mom was diagnosed in 1996 (at age 44) and passed away in 2003.
This year's ride benefits several organizations. I have elected to have the money I raise donated to the Firefly Sisterhood, an organization that matches breast cancer patients with survivors for mentorship. As common as breast cancer is, it still can be a lonely road and it is nice to have the support of someone who has been through it. That is exactly what the Firefly Sisterhood strives to do.
Consider donating today!
Thanks for your support!
