I wanted to do something to fight this disease that affected me and so many others. The competitive spirit and support of those around me fueled this desire and was the spark that ignited the Heroes Foundation.
I fight cancer because I can. I’ve watched people I love and care about deal with this horrible disease, and I got tired of simply watching and hoping. I wanted to get involved and use my talents to try to make a difference. The Heroes Foundation, and Team Heroes (the cycling/triathlon team of the Heroes Foundation) have provided me numerous opportunities to get involved and fight cancer. We will make a difference.
I fight cancer in honor of my nephews Brody Stephens and Sam Jackman and my cousin Kelly Chesebrough. Cancer impacts us all and The Heroes Foundation provides incredible support, education and resources to move us closer to a cure.
Cancer has touched all of our lives, in the loss of a parent, child, relative, partner, or friend. I want to be part of something bigger than myself and help those who most need our help. The Heroes Foundation is doing this now through cancer Prevention, Support, and Research, there is no better and bigger cause.
I fight cancer because of my mother. My mother has battled cancer for 7 years and is currently in remission. She has taught me how to endure hardship and how to keep your trust in God. This act of courage has changed my life and has challenged me to join the fight against cancer.
I fight cancer for all of those who have had to fight for their lives and to help one day make it so others don’t have to.
I fight cancer for my family members and friends who have been impacted by this horrible disease.
