Cycle for Survival // In The Press
Dear Family and Friends,
Our team of Six will be riding with over 13,000 other cyclers from across the country and
around the world to make a difference in the lives of millions of people affected by rare cancers. Rare cancers include cancers of the brain, ovarian, pancreatic, leukemia, lymphoma, sarcoma, all pediatric cancers, and countless others that all desperately need our attention and help.
Almost 5 years ago my friend Cheryl was diagnosed with cancer. We were told that it was so rare that the odds of her getting it was similar to the odds of being hit by lightening. Unlike more common cancers there were not a lot of treatment options. She chose to be treated at Sloan-Kettering since they had the most experience with rare cancers. Now, we want to give back to them and pay our gratitude forward as a gesture of thanks for saving Cheryl’s life.
Every dollar my team raises goes directly to MSKCC to fund research on rare cancers. In just the past five years, Cycle has funded Over 100 new clinical trials and research studies with the promise of many more from the success of Cycle 2015.
This progress and the hope it brings to people like me and my family is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you! I hope you will be willing to make a gift to support my ride against cancer. The link below will bring you to my fundraising page where you can make a tax-deductible online donation.
Thank you for your support! And, if you feel moved to do more, please forward this on to others on your email lists.
I am volunteering once again on Friday, March 6, 2015 for my FOURTH year riding in the Cycle for Survival, the national, indoor relay-style team cycling event that has raised more than $57 million in support of life-changing research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Our Team is called the Wheeler Healers! Riding with me as my Team Captain is my dear friend Cheryl who is a survivor of one of these very rare cancers.
Peace & Good Health
We had an amazing time with both Feldenkrais Practitioners and enthusiasts on Wednesday, February 11 at Xu Bing's installation. See it on your own before it leaves at the end of February at St. John the Divine
