2 Wheels for 2 Grandmas
Ovarian Cancer is a disease that has taken both of my grandmothers from me. Watching my parents lose their mothers was one of the hardest experiences I have ever faced. In honor of my grandmothers, and to show support for those families still facing the challenges of this disease, my Mom and I will be riding in the TD Five Boro Bike Tour with the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Team.
For those who do not know, the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition (NOCC) is an organization that fights to raise awareness for Ovarian Cancer. Also known as the "Silent Killer," many who are diagnosed with this cancer tend to catch their symptoms when it is too late. I would like to help raise as much awareness and money as I can in order to support and give back to the families impacted by this disease.
Every dollar I raise will be put towards the NOCC's goals of increasing awareness, supporting those affected and and funding research for a cure! Please share this with anyone you know who would like to be involved with the event or give back to the cause!
Thank you for taking the time to read this! Together, we can make a difference!
