JOIN THE BATTLE. Help our Sister Sam raise money to beat her rare cancer!

Thank you for visiting our Team page and more importantly, for supporting this extremely important cause.

In the beginning of 2018, our sister in law Sam was diagnosed with a rare cancer. Needless to say, hearing this news was devastating and scary for us as a family. Right away, all we could think about was how we could support her, lift her spirits, and show endless amounts of love to help Sam through the journey that she was about to face. 2018 was likely the toughest one of her life, and we are thrilled to announce that she has been in remission since January 2019.

Sam is a wife, (to my brother), a mom of 2 (to my nephew Ty and niece Joey) and a friend to countless people. Sam is active, she is an explorer, she loves to do things, experience life, and live it to the fullest. Sam is positive, she is upbeat, she doesn’t judge, and she seeks to understand. Sam is an all-around awesome lady. We find it so easy to love and support Sam and are so grateful that you are helping us support this cause. Here are some words from Sam, from her fundraising page that I hope you can read:

“People tell you chemo is hard. But they don't tell you how difficult it can be after your treatments. The fatigue. The weight gain. The mouth sores. The insomnia at night. The hospital vacations, which totaled 10 days. 10 days away from my family. 10 days away from reailty.
And now, it has been 10 months since my last chemo treatment. I have had 10 months to reflect on this journey. When you finish treatment, everyone celebrates for you. "You're done!" and "It's over!" are commonly said. And yes, the physical portion of it is over. But the process is ongoing. I have been back to MSK for various appointments and scans 15 times in the past 10 months. It isn't over.
And the emotions of dealing with the unkown are very present. The reality is, this could come back. And if it does, the outcome might be very different. But, the biggest lesson I have come to learn is that you cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward it. So my choice is to live. To stop and smell the roses. And if this had to happen, it sure as hell better mean something.
So, for the second year, I'm riding in Cycle for Survival to raise money for rare cancer research. 50% of people that have cancer actually have a rare cancer, most of which you have probably heard of. But these cancers are LARGELY underfunded. We can change that. I don't take for granted how lucky I was, and am. I have spoken to loved ones of people who were not as lucky as I am, which is why I have dedicated myself to making sure there are more outcomes like mine.
Our team was able to raise $115,000 last year, which we were able to put toward a researcher looking into my specific type of cancer. THIS WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN POSSIBLE WITHOUT OUR EFFORTS! Let's keep this going and raise even more this year. Please donate. Please join our team and ride with us. We would love to have you. We can do so much more, together.”

Thank you all SO much for your love and support,

Ali & Tim Stevens
