Cancer Community Tribute
Add a cancer warrior tribute to my cycling uniform for the World Masters Track Cycling Championships in October 2017.
Cancer has claimed the lives of my father, mother, one uncle, and my oldest sister. I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2003, and my youngest sister learned she had breast cancer this past June.
There are more than 15 million cancer survivors living in the United States today and every 19 seconds another American learns they have cancer.
Bicycling has been a key element in my personal cancer battle plan over the past 14 years. I always wear a jersey related to cancer awareness and prevention when I ride. Helping prevent cancer through early detection and supporting cancer survivors during their cancer journeys is my personal “give back” to society.
I am proud to be supporting current cancer survivors and remembering past survivors by putting their names on the uniform I’ll be wearing when I race on October 8, 2017 at the VELO Sports Center in Carson, California.
You can add the name of a loved one by sending their name and year of diagnosis to Tribute @ CancerJourneysFoundation.org, or by clicking on the blue “Contact” button at the bottom right of the screen.
