To me LIVESTRONG means seeing my friend healthy and happy after a long struggle with ovarian cancer.

My friend Tracy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer 3 years ago. She endured a long year of treatment, but is now healthy and cancer free. Livestrong Foundation really helped her get back on her feet. She rode in support of this organization last year. This year she is busy moving back East (and I will miss her) and I am riding for her.

My brother Bob is a cancer survivor, and we had a wonderful visit a few weeks ago. My friends Nan, Rachel and Paula are also survivors. My step-mother Cynthia and my aunt Portia died from cancer. 

Riding my trike has been a great way for me to recovery from surgery and to get outside.  Riding 20 miles will be a challenge for me. 

Thanks for your support.
