JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.

On February 1st, I will get on my bike for the SIXTH year in a row to ride with Cycle For Survival. I know many of you are familiar with this event, but for those that are not - Cycle For Survival is an indoor bike ride where people from across the country - cancer survivors, patients, caregivers, doctors and researchers, friends and family - ride together in an effort to make cancer a thing of the past. It is my favorite day of the year, and the mission is very close to my heart.

In 2010, my mom Ellen was diagnosed with breast cancer. The diagnosis was 'good' as far as these things go - it was Stage 1, doctors were optimistic, we were told she would soon return to a normal life. She had a few surgeries, radiation treatment, and was ultimately given a clean bill of health. After 5 years, we even called her cancer-free.

Fast forward to 2018, when we got the news no one was expecting. Her cancer was back, but now it had spread - it was already at Stage 4.

My mom is living with Metastatic Breast Cancer. Her disease cannot be cured, but it can be treated - by the very treatments that Memorial Sloan Kettering pioneers. If you ever make a donation to cancer research and wonder where it goes, look at my mom - the advancements that have been made by Memorial Sloan Kettering have given her treatment options that weren't available even back in 2010, when she was first diagnosed. This is why fundraising and research is SO very important.

100% of every single dollar raised by Cycle for Survival funds research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering. $222M has been raised by this movement. This year, my personal goal is ambitious - $10,000 - but with the support of the most amazing friends and family, I know I will surpass this goal. Every single dollar counts, and I am so grateful for whatever you can give.

You can make a real difference. Please support me, and Team Spin Hope and Cure, on our ride. We ride in support of everyone fighting this relentless disease. We ride in celebration of our survivors, and in memory of everyone we've lost. But most importantly, we ride for the day we no longer have to. JOIN THE BATTLE!

I love you, mom :)
