IN MEMORY OF KAYUR SHAH ~ 1982-2019
In 2017 PMC Team BBS (Brown Boy Strong) was established in honor of Kayur Shah as he began his fight against Stage IV Lung Cancer while also battling the autoimmune disease, Scleroderma. Kayur decided to fight and go through treatment at Dana-Farber Cancer Institutein Boston. He gained his strength to fight, wanting to see his son, Lucas (now 7) grow up as long as possible. Sadly, Kayur lost his courageous battle on June 17, 2019.
Team BBS carries out Kayur’s memory contributing to one of the leading fundraisers in the United States, the Pan-Mass Challenge. The team is composed of family and friends brought together by Kayur, but riding for so many others. We ride and fundraise in memory of, or in honor of loved ones, who have or are battling various types of cancer. All of our funds raised support Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in their research toward treatments and drug trials.
When you or a family member gets a diagnosis of cancer, you come to realize how much everyday counts. We THANK all of those who have and who continue to donate toward Team BBS’s mission. As Dana-Farber provides for so many families, Dana-Farber also provided Kayur’s family with additional time to create moments and memories - so now we ask you to join US, in the HOPE that every penny we raise can do the same.
With the help of so many Team BBS is proud to say we have raised $279,804 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute over the past 6 years.
