Why I Participate:
My life was impacted tremendously when my dearest in-laws, Adolfo and Aida Albaisa, were diagnosed with cancer. Their children, brothers, sisters, grandchildren and friends were all devastated by their loss to such a horrible disease. I will be riding in loving memory of their wonderful spirit and legacy.
In the next three years that followed, two of my closest friends and soul sisters were diagnosed with breast cancer - one in 2007, the other in 2009. Between these two strong women, they endured multiple surgeries, chemotherapy and hormone therapy. My friends fought hard and conquered the disease, each with tremendous courage, hope and determination. Their success was due in large part to therapies and treatments developed by teams of physicians and researchers unwilling to back down, and dedicated to finding a cure.
Last year, on November 14th, I cycled for the first time with Bill's Angels for the 66-mile bike ride in honor of those who have been affected by this disease. Two of these brave warriors are our own 'Littlest Angels,' Angelina and Sol, whose family each day faces a truth we hope never to endure...a child diagnosed with cancer. Through the Ride for a Child Program, Angelina and Sol serve as a tremendous inspiration to us all.
This year, on November 17th, I am very excited to support Padres Pedal the Cause by participating in the 5k Run/Walk. I have a personal goal to raise $1000-ALL of the proceeds stay in San Diego and go directly to research-that means every dollar donated could potentially save a life!
Please help Padres Pedal the Cause and its beneficiaries to create a new world - a world without cancer. Many thanks in advance for your compassion, kindness and generous support.
In health and healing,
