When someone you love has cancer it puts you in a place of such helplessness. There is nothing you can do to make things better. You can only rely on the doctors and the treaments and research that is available. Sometimes it helps, but sometimes its just not enough ... yet.
I ride because it gives me a way to fight back against cancer. I cannot end cancer alone, but by supporting the researchers and scientists at Fred Hutch I can help to Cure Cancer Faster. Please join me in helping them get there sooner. Research advances knowledge and that’s the path to obliterating cancer. For that reason, I ride to accelerate research at Fred Hutch.
The treatement my mom recieved when she was sick wasn't enough to save her, but it was so much more then she would have gotten even 10 years ago. I'm incredibly thankful for the extra time that gave her but it will never make up for the fact that in the end her treament wasn't enough. I ride so that for the next person it will be.
Sadly, half of all men and one third of all women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime.
We need that to stop.
More than 300 labs and projects are working hard to save the lives of people all over the world by conducting innovative, high-impact cancer research. I’m committed to supporting these labs so they can continue saving lives and can do so faster. Please join me in this fight.
It’s time for us to put cancer in its place. Behind us.
Ride with me, donate to my ride, and tell others about Obliteride.
