There is just no other good way to put it. Been there, done that, take it from me, Cancer - you don’t want it!!! You probably already know our story but if not, the abbreviated version goes like this: Our son Aaron was diagnosed with Type ALL Leukemia at age 21. Even with chemotherapy and radiation his cancer went from bad to worse. He was given single digit odds for survival. A bone marrow transplant from his little brother coupled with the great doctors at the Cleveland Clinic and of course the grace of G-d saved his life. Aaron graduated from the Lerner School of Medicine and is now a cancer doctor himself at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC! Yeah!!!! The story gets even better. Aaron is now 14 years cancer free and he and his wife Aly have blessed us with a beautiful granddaughter – Lilah Bea. It’s a miracle near biblical proportion!
While we were blessed with a happy ending, cancer often takes the lives of our loved ones. It seems that cancer sooner or later touches every family. Sadly today we associate cancer with suffering and death. This path must be changed! Cures for cancer will come thru research and of course research requires funding.
Normally you associate me with bikes as in motorcycles. On July 22, I will be riding the other kind of bike – the pedal kind of bike. I will be riding in the Velosano designed to raise funds and awareness for cancer research. Last year was my first Velosano and I rode in the 25 mile event. This year I'm bustin loose and throwin it all down! Oh Ya! I'm going for the 50 mile event! Take that 60 year old legs!!!! The big prize is that 100% of all funds raised will be used for cancer research at the Cleveland Clinic. Please join me in finding a cure for cancer thru research. Wow that bike seat is small and yes, I have an aching sitbone as I train for this ride but it’s all for a good cause.
This is where you come in!
