As many of you know, Stef and I are big Lance Armstrong Foundation supporters. The yellow Livestrong bands have been on our wrists since the summer of 2004 when they were first seen before the Tour de France. We wear those bands not to support an athlete, or a man, but rather a cause; cancer research and survivorship. I am proud to be a Livestrong Leader working on cancer advocacy in the Boston area.
For me, I have lost 3 grandparents to cancer, my Dad had a melanoma, aunts and uncles have had cancer. I have seen friends and family fight, win and lose against this horrible disease. Cancer has likely touched the life of every person reading this. Whether a family member or a friend, whether it be skin cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer or breast cancer; we have all been touched by this devastating disease. While medicine has made great strides in our lifetimes, the battle against cancer is still far from over! Organizations like the Lance Armstrong Foundation (www.laf.org) and the Jimmy Fund (www.jimmyfund.org) are out there fighting the good fight so we can beat this disease.
I have been riding the PMC since 2006, raising over $30,000 so far and covering well over 1000 miles. This year, I am the captain for the first ever "Team LIVESTRONG". All the money we raise is restricted to the LIVESTRONG Survivorship Clinic at Dana Farber. The dollars you raise will go directly to cancer survivors getting services at Dana Farber. While cancer research is very important, it's about tomorrow. Your dollars will help people fighting and surviving cancer TODAY! I ride in memory of all the family and friends who have fought, won and lost their battle. Most importantly, I ride for my son AJ and my daughter Haley to ensure their generation never has to worry about this horrible disease. In 2010, cancer became our #1 global killer. We MUST do more!
