Support My Ride for Linnea
I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR ALL OF YOUR SUPPORT!!! THANKS TO YOU I HAVE REACHED MY FUNDRAISING GOAL!
Please consider looking through our Team Roster (below) to support a team member who is short of their $2500 mimimum fundraising ammount!!
When Linnea was first diagnosed with Cancer in November 2014 we knew we were in for a fight. The first days and months were hard and full of uncertainty, but somehow I just knew that it was going to be journey that we would get through together: a contraction in our life story that we would pass through and come out the other side to a sunny future together.
Unfortunately, that was not the case. Linnea's cancer returned only a few months after finishing treatment, and in January we learned that it spread to her lungs, and later to her spine. I can't describe the feelings that accompany this journey. Something I struggle with every day is a sense of helplessness. I yearn for something, anything, that I can do. One morning, sitting in the waiting room at the Cross while Linnea underwent radiation, I picked up a brochure for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. A day later, I signed up.
I know that the money we raise together may not come in time for research that will help Linnea. But, in her name, I hope that we can raise funds that will spare other women - and their loved ones - from ever having to endure what we have endured.
I hope that you will join me, and contribute to this history-making event with a donation. I have asked that Funds raised through our efforts go directly to research for triple-negative breast cancer and for compastionate care at the Cross Cancer Institute. As soon as you make a donation, the funds are available for researchers...even if I don't make it past mile one.
Please consider a donation to our cause.
