Why I Participate:

I am a medical oncologist and hematologist who primarily treats patients with blood disorders or blood cancers. Many of the patients I meet have a disease called chronic lymphocytic leukemia. I ride because I've seen that medical research really provides a tangible benefit to the lives of patients with cancer and their families. New treatments are profoundly changing the way patients are treated, and even better things are right around the corner. I'm thankful to have the chance to be a part of making things better through my practice, research, and through fundraising like this.

This will be my 4th year riding in Pedal the Cause. Every year I am touched by the way that so many other riders, survivors, families, researchers, and volunteers rally to this cause. It's sobering but also motivating that cancer affects so many of us.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $1000 for cancer research.
