Why I Participate:
Fast forward to today -- Mark was diagnosed with Gastro-Esophageal cancer on June 7th and sadly lost his battle with his very aggressive Metastatic Gastric Cancer with Diffused Linitus Plastica on April 24, 2018. He died peacefully in the ICU at UCSD Jacobs Medical Center. Although I am heart broken and profoundly sad, I want to channel my grief into something positive, which is raising research money so the next person diagnosed with Mark's type and condition of cancer can be saved.
Moores Cancer Center is a Ntl Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. It is a world renowned training, teaching, research and treatment facility, which provides the most up-to-date treatment protocals to their patients. I am motivated for this ride and to raise money, as the proceeds go to accelerating groundbreaking, collaborative research at four world-class facilities here in San Diego, one of which IS, Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, as well 3 other well known facilities. I will ride for My Hero, My Love, My Rock Star....Mark, who fought courageously till the end of his earthly life!
