I am riding in the PMC again this year. I want to thank everyone who has donated to the PMC in the past. Because of you, my lifetime fundraising totals $73,366, last year’s total was $18,752, $4,076 over my goal.
The PMC has raised over $831 million since beginning in 1980 and is over 55% of the annual revenue of the Jimmy Fund. 100% of the PMC rider donations goes to Dana-Farber.
PMC is the #1 Cause-Related Cycling Org. in USA.
PMC is #4 Peer-to-Peer Fundraiser in USA. (Incl. PMC,PMC Winter Cycle, PMC Kids Rides)
Dana-Farber was founded in 1947 by Sidney Farber, MD who pioneered therapies to treat children with leukemia and has continued 70+ years of research discovery and innovation that has revolutionized cancer diagnosis and treatment, for the benefit of all patients, adult and pediatric. They focus exclusively on cancer and related diseases.
When my daughter Amy was diagnosed with leukemia in 2010, we went to Dana-Farber for her treatment. We didn’t know at the time that Dana-Farber was founded on developing treatments for leukemia, but we did know that it was the place to go for the best cancer treatments. The care she received from the entire Dana-Farber team was beyond any expectations we had. They treated the entire patient and family with their wide range of patient and family support services.
I will be wearing ribbons again this year to honor those who were affected by cancer. Last year, I had 47 ribbons. I appreciated the cards and notes sent to me honoring your loved ones and to me in support of my ride. Please let me know a name you would like to honor by the end of July.
The PMC is very important to me since many of my family have been affected by cancer. Due the current economic situation, my goal this year is to raise $15,000. Please give what you can.
