On August 2nd, I will ride 84 miles in the 35th annual Pan-Mass Challenge in honor of my mom and in memory of my Uncle Lu.
I'm riding to raise $5,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute because I know the importance of the work they're doing.
I'm riding because my mom received life-saving treatment for breast cancer from her team of caregivers at Dana-Farber.
And I'm riding because my Uncle Lu lost his battle to lung cancer but received the best treatment available from the clinicians at Dana-Farber when he was diagnosed.
Please consider making a gift to support my ride and help advance cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber: http://www2.pmc.org/profile/AR0160

Last weekend, I completed my first Pan-Mass Challenge, riding 84 miles, mostly in the rain, because I made a commitment to raise $5,000 for life-saving cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!

Iit was an unforgettable and uplifting experience to see people along almost every mile of the route cheering for us in their rain gear, saying "Thank you for riding!"

I thought about quitting at the last water stop in Wareham, with less than 10 miles to go until the finish line in Bourne, because I was soaking wet, shivering from the cold, and both of my hands were numb to the point that I couldn't shift gears anymore.

But I kept going because I was riding in honor of my mom and her caretakers at Dana-Farber, where she received treatment for breast cancer six years ago. She is healthy and in remission today, and she didn't get there by giving up on chemo or calling it quits when she was nauseous or in pain.

And because I rode in memory of my Uncle Lu, who lost his battle with lung cancer in 2009. He was treated at Dana-Farber when he was first diagnosed and I wanted to pay tribute to his brave fight by putting up one of my own.

Now, I need your help to reach my fundraising goal -- I'm not quitting on that either! Please consider making a donation of any amount.

Solve the social network's mobile dilemma. Make a mint on advertising without annoying 100 million users. No problem right

I was disappointed to discover that this location is owned/operated by BU and not a corporate store (which means certain coupons and promotions cannot be redeemed). The staff was very friendly, but my chai latte was very watery and the cheese from my breakfast sandwich was stuck to the outside of the bag. Not sure I will visit this store again.
