Pamela Elrod's Ride

Why I Ride ...

Three years ago, I rode my first PMC ride for a wonderful woman who had lost her battle with Cancer.  I didn’t know I had cancer at the time. Marcia Sacco was, and still is, the angel on my shoulder.   Today I am a cancer fighter in a different way.  I fight it by raising money to eradicate the disease.  Since my first ride 11 friends, family and employees have been diagnosed with some form of cancer.  Two have lost their battle.

Research has already created a blood test that diagnoses 80% of certain kinds of cancers.  It is in the FDA testing stage right now.  Gene research will make it so that therapies will not be shotgun blasts to the whole body but rather targeted specifically to the mutations of each disease.  That will allow for specific therapies to be administered that not only control, and potentially cure the disease, but will do no harm to other tissues.    Scientists believed that cancer can become a manageable disease, instead of a terminal one, within 20 years.

Yes, I ride for Marcia and all my friends.  But I am also riding for my son Bryce and my daughter Kendra.  The hope for a better future for them inspires and spurs me on as I begin my quest to fight cancer again this year.   Imagine a world where cancer was not a death sentence for millions.

Someone you know is fighting Cancer….someone you know if fighting for them.
