Welcome to My Personal Page
We ride memory of Poppa, sd B.J. was known to Maya, my daughter. My dad. Her Grandpa. It's in his memory we ride – as we remembered and honor the lives of too many of our friends who have also encountered the challenges that come with a brain tumor diagnosis. This year Marilyn Altbush, a fellow rower, rides with us in memory of her daugher Faith Altbush, who died at the age of 8 of a diffuse pontine glioma, a rare incurable brain tumor.
When Maya was four years old, her Poppa was diagnosed an incurable glioblastoma brain tumor. During his illness, she often sat on his lap while they played animal lotto. She giggled at awesome animal sounds my dad made as they played. My memories of B.J. stretch through more than 60 years, encompassing our precious moments together. My dad was my biggest backer; he was with me for every step I took, even when my steps were unconventional and unexpected.
Join B.J.'s Team by riding with us or by contributing in support of our ride. Many times my dad told me how much he wanted to help others who were afflicted with this disease. For many of you, this will be your 14th year on B.J.'s Team. We are grateful that you've been with us for the more than 300 miles we've biked so far on our annual Brain Tumor Rides. For those of you joining B.J.'s Team for the first time, welcome. We thank you.
Fulfilling my dad's wish can happen only when you join B.J.'s Team.
