Boston Brain Tumor Ride

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

It's spring, but all winter I've been riding my old bike on a trainer in the garage. I'm preparing for the ride of someone's life, The Boston Brain Tumor Ride. This will be my third time riding. It's a very personal ride, as cancer has touched our family in a variety of forms.

When I was a Postdoctoral Fellow my mentor, Marty, had cancer. It was everywhere. She called me into her office one day and said they were going to give her head a CAT scan. They suspected it was there as well. Puzzled, I looked at her and said, "Nah, I know you don't have any CATs up there. I'd give it a pass."

Why would I say that? Because the disease had already taken over her spine, hip, liver, and breast tissue, what was left of it from a Mastectomy. She taught me more than computer science, She taught me how to live.

Care to sponsor my ride? Send me the name of a loved one and I will carry it with me, for this ride and every other ride I complete.

Every little bit helps another family with cancer.
Thank you.
