Welcome to My Personal Page
Now why I ride and what I am asking you to do.
I am participating in the Boston Brain Tumor Ride again this year because my daughter Erin was diagnosed with a brain tumor the in November of 2011 and was operated on in December 2011 and is now a survivor. The tumor returned in July of 2013. Erin was then operated on again to have the tumor removed. In the Fall of 2013 she had proton radiation and chemo at Mass General. Erin Completed an additional 6 months of chemo on the day of this ride in 2014. She completed the 40 mile ride that day crossing the fish line with the entire team behind her. It was an awe inspiring moment for me and one that I hope we can repeat for many years to come.
This has been a very scary time for all of us. Prior to this I knew nothing about brain tumors except that people died from them - not survived. I hope by doing this ride I am able to help raise more awareness about brain tumors. Erin is doing very well due to all of the blessings and prayers she has been given. Erin has ridden this ride for six years now and Daniel and I plan on riding with her again this year. Those blessings just happen to include some of the best doctors, nurses and medical staff that anyone could ask for and a surgeon who knows how to use the gifts God has given him to save those stricken with Brain tumors. I know none of this would have been possible without your prayers and the donations of private money to fund the research and education.
There are now new treatments and possible "long term remission" or even "cure" that will be coming to the market within the next 5 to 10 years. Hopefully sooner. What we raise goes into funding that type of research. I can't wait for the day we can say Erin is "Cured" of this disease.
Thank You in advance for anything you can do to help. No matter how small.
