I have children. I don't have a child with cancer. I have, however, been affected by childhood cancer. In 2002, the sweetest little girl came into this world and cancer took her out of it in 2005. She was not my child but my cousin's and I loved her from the moment I saw her. I will never forget the story her mother told me of her last few days. "Why are you crying mama? Why are you sad? I am going to see Papa Jesus." My life has been forever changed knowing her. I've been riding two bike tours every year that benefit pediatric cancer research. This bike tour is by far my favorite. My 5th year riding the Tour of Long Beach and it is my honor to ride 30 miles and raise funds for this cause. I'm grateful for your support!
