Why I Participate:
We all know the girl who lights up every room! This girl would be my friend Nancy. We were in the Napa Valley in December with a close group of girlfriends celebrating the holidays and friendship. One month later, January 2018, Nancy world changed forever. She found out she had breast cancer and has since undergone surgery and is currently in extensive chemotherapy to be followed by radiation.
While the battle against the big "C" is improving on many fronts, once again I have more friends battling this disease for the first time this year.
Through my involvement, I have had the chance to get to know some of the leading edge cancer doctors in the United States and they are confident we are close to finding a cure for several types of cancer in the next year or two. This ride is for my many friends and family members who are either currently going through chemo/radiation or thankfully in remission now.
Padres Pedal is committed to creating a world without cancer. To date, it has raised over $7 million to fund lifesaving research with .....being funded. Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, Salk Institute for Biological Studies, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego.
Last year, you helped me raise over $20,000 for this incredible cause. I am determined to increase it again this year! When you click on the donate button above, you will find a simple and secure way to make any size donation you wish. Any amount is truly appreciated!
In advance, thank you for considering a donation to my ride in support of our efforts to end cancer. Together, we WILL find a cure!
My sincerest thanks,
