I have decided to endure the challenge Tour De Cure as my mother is currently battling cancer. Over the past 6 months she has gone through several bouts of radiation as chemo was not an option for her due to her weight and overall health. She is a fighter and I admire her for that, but unfortunately after her most recent PET scan the cancer has metastasized leaving her time left with us uncertain.
I have always admired the people and charitable groups throughout the years that have come together to make a difference in fighting Cancer and for myself this will be a humbling experience, which I will hold dear to my heart and moving forward will continue to support in any capacity
For those of you that know me, I have my own struggles in life like many. The challenges this event will bring both physically and mentally will help me become a better version of myself, which over the years I lost touch with.
It is my humble hope this message reaches the eyes and ears of not only my friends and family, but to anybody who wants to help make a difference in the never ending fight in Cancer. Imagine there comes a day we do not have to say "goodbye" I do not only want to reach my goal of 2500, but smash it. It will be very rewarding to me as I limp across the finish line, as the pain does not or will not compare to loosing somebody to cancer
