I’m committing to Obliteride this August and participating the 50 mile long bike ride because I believe research is the fastest path to curing cancer, and I also believe the team at Fred Hutch can get us there.
My mother, Rita, passed away on May 11th, 2018 from clear cell renal carcinoma and I ride in her memory. Along with her, I ride in honor of each of the children fighting their battles daily right now at Seattle Children's Hospital and in memory of the precious angels that have all impacted my life and inspired my career as a pediatric oncology nurse practitioner.
Sadly, half of all men and one third of all women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime and far too many people are directly impacted by cancer in the lives of their loved ones much like myself.
Fred Hutch is learning more about cancer prevention, diagnostics and treatment and Obliteride can help us get to cures faster.
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.
Please join me in this effort to put cancer in its place, behind us.
Ride or walk, donate, and tell others about Obliteride.
