I lost my family member to cancer recently. They lost their battle far too soon due to this devastating disease. My unwavering commitment to this cause has only strengthened as a result of this tragic loss.

The doctors said "there is no cure, only chemo and radiation". They said there was also no better treatment than that--all because there "is no funding for research". The doctors said, "not enough people are affected with these tumors, so funding just doesn't go to looking for a cure". Devastating to hear that your family member is going to die, and there's nothing anybody can do to help them.

I could not be more proud to raise money for this incredible charity which not only works at finding a cure for all cancers, but also works at building a community of people who have been affected themselves by cancer, or have loved ones affected by this horrible disease. I truly believe we can make a difference. Together we can fund research, provide hope and stay on a relentless pursuit to save people's lives. Nobody should have to watch their family or friends die from cancer ever again.


Two years ago, I rode in my first charity cycling event--a 2 day, 150 mile ride throughout upstate New York and parts of Connecticut. Last year, I participated in the first annual Answer to Cancer bike ride. This year, as I gear up for round 3, I ask that you kindly help me meet and exceed my fundraising goal of $10,000. No donation is too big or too small.

Cancer can affect anyone, which is why I am proud to be participating in this event that will help create the Answer to Cancer. The Cancer Research Institute is working hard to bring a new and promising way to treat cancer, called immunotherapy, to all cancer patients.

Please make a donation today to help me reach my fundraising goal. 100% of all donations will go to support lifesaving cancer research.

I am grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word. Together, we will find the Answer to Cancer!
