Good evening everyone! I NEED YOUR HELP, especially those living in or near Chicago, or anyone willing to drive to Chicago with me on February 9, 2013. As most of you know, I have a rare cancer. With anything rare, research is drastically underfunded. In laymans terms, it’s supply and demand (with 80-100 diagosed a year, the incentive isn’t there for large companies to do massive research). You learn to accept it, but it also instills a drive for a person to be a strong advocate for their own health.
With that said, I am at a point in this journey to pay it forward. I want to form a team for Cycle for Survival, an event to help fund research for rare cancers. If you are willing, please join my team. If you are interested, please call or text me (517 242 8146), email (firstname.lastname@example.org), or post below. It is obviously an indoor event, and it is for ALL fitness levels! IF the only thing holding you back to join is fitness level, I promise you will be okay. They are on stationary bikes, and we take turns. I want to get the max of 4 registered bikes and 32 team members. This means we each ride for 30 minutes on 4 – 8 person groups on our team. If I get more than 32 wonderful volunteers, we can form more than one team, even better!!
My disease needs the funding, and all donations we earn go directly towards a research lab directly working on angiosarcoma. I want to help others as well as myself with this disease. This event promises to be a wonderful time! If you are willing, or know of somebody else that is, or BOTH, please contact me! If you are out of town, I am driving that morning of February 9th. We can car pool if you are coming from Michigan. If you are coming from a further state, I can help you get to Chicago. I truly want this to happen, and, if we do very well in raising funds, I want to start a non-profit to do even more.
I want to do as much as I can as long as I can, but, as with everything in this journey, I cannot do it without all of you! Thank you for all of your love and prayers. Please continue to keep my family in your thoughts and prayers. I hope to hear from many of you! We truly love you all. 🙂
