Why I Participate:
I'm participating in Pedal the Cause in honor of my dad.
My dad, an avid cyclist, was out for a bike ride in summer 2017 when he suffered a seizure. An MRI in the hospital revealed a brain tumor. In September 2017 he was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain cancer.
Two awake craniotomies, chemotherapy, radiation, infusions, and a post-surgery stroke have made this a hard battle, but he has faced this terrible disease with a positive attitude and an appreciation for each and every day.
Pedal the Cause supports cancer research at the incredible institutions in San Diego. I have the honor of working for UC San Diego Health and doing my part to support the amazing research, clinical care, and education that happens here.
Personally, I have committed to run on November 16th and raise $5,000 for cancer research. I hope you will support me in this journey and consider making a donation, of any size. 100% of your tax-deductible donation will go directly to fund cancer research.
