Join the cause and honor these inspiring cancer fighters,
who embody our mission to end cancer.
I never once believed that I could not beat the cancer…
Had it not been for the diagnosis, I would not be where I am today in my career and I would not have had the amazing experiences with my family that I was able to enjoy in a very difficult time.
I am a 43-year-old Active Duty Lieutenant Colonel in the Marine Corps with almost 19 years of service. I currently serve as the Executive Officer for the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit out of Camp Pendleton, Ca. My initial diagnosis occurred Friday January 22, 2016 at Osan Air Base in South Korea.
While there are certainly days I ride with a heavy heart I also ride with the hope and determination that we can create a world free of cancer for my daughter and all our children. I know we can do it, but not without the research funded by events like Padres Pedal. Please join me in supporting this amazing event! 100% of the money you donate goes directly to fund cancer research!
