I ride for a 6 year-old childhood cancer warrior & her twin. Meet Lillian (left) & Emma Belfield. They are two of the strongest girls. They inspire me every day! For the month of June I plan to dust off my bicycle after a decade of storage and ride to fight childhood cancer. Miss Lillian's diagnosis of anaplastic astroblastoma brain cancer in January 2015 has not stopped her. Her determination to remain in school during her treatment and her involvement with intramural sports with her sister outside the school day.
Lillian might have cancer but cancer doesn't have her, she is a fighter. Her sister Emma is a fighter too. Childhood cancer is difficult in itself but to have your twin experience it alongside you must be a challenge outside anyone's understanding. Emma's grace and understanding is profound and an example to anyone who sees her. I'm in awe of Miss Emma's strength. My 1st time on a bike since my daughter is 5 is to honor these two amazing young ladies and their battle.
I know I'm less than a tenth of the way to reaching my (not so SMART) goal to ride 100 miles but my desire and determination to help Miss Lillian and her sister is 100% strong and full speed. I'm thankful my heart has more endurance than my body to ride a bicycle 100 miles. Thank you in advance!
This month, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge and my goal is to pedal 100 miles throughout June to fight kids' cancer.
Why am I doing this? Because cancer is the largest killer of children from disease in the United States – 38 children die of cancer every week!
Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.
