This year will represent my 4th VeloSano ride. Like last year, I have decided to ride 50 miles, which was challenging as I had never ridden a bike 50 miles before VeloSano 3. Given the importance of this ride in raising valuable funds to help conquer cancer, I look forward to the challenge and hope you will consider sponsoring me so we continue to make positive difference in the lives of cancer patients, families and friends.
As a radiation oncologist who deals primarily with brain, spine and eye tumors, I witness the struggles, vulnerabilities, sacrifices, and grit of cancer patients who go through treatments. The great news is that we are making a true difference given the advances in basic, translational and clinical research. Events like VeloSano are very important to raise much needed funds, which is particularly important given the decrease in funding levels for the many worthy research projects, ideas, and trials. Since 100% of the donations that I and others raise go directly to support cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic, I am very happy and honored to do my part to help make a difference.
Please join me in raising funds for this important cause! By working together, we can continue raise much needed research funds to find the cure for cancer, a disease that affects too many of our families, friends and colleagues.
Thank you very much for your support of my 50 mile ride!
