My dad died of cancer in 1976. My mom succumbed to the disease in 2006, making me an orphan at the age of 44. My step-dad died of cancer in 2008.
My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and is currently cancer-free. My sister-in-law is also a cancer survivor.
That's why I support my sister in her ride for the cure, the Pan-Mass Challenge. Ride spans the state of Mass, from Sturbridge to the tip of the Cape, Provincetown.
The race was last weekend, and she completed it. But she is currently short on her donations, so she's still accepting them:
Any donation is welcomed. 100% of donations go to the cause.
