when my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer over 20 years ago, i felt hopeless and helpless. she fought and won that battle! last year, she was diagnosed again and through screening and early detection she was able to be a 2 time cancer survivor. a few years ago, during my first mammogram i felt a lump. this took me through the process of ultrasound, MRI and some amazing doctors and nurses in the cedar valley, my diagnoses was not cancer - but now i get screened twice a year. i have personally seen the technology and research for cancer literally save lives. i can truly say that for my mom and myself.
this is an opportunity to raise money for the american cancer society along with joywheel and my fellow riders to continue to save more lives, spread HOPE and give JOY!
