  • LIVESTRONG Challenge

    You can help the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF) fulfill its mission to inspire and empower cancer survivors! Founded in 1997 by testicular cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, the LAF believes that in the battle with cancer, unity is strength, knowledge is power, and attitude is everything. From the moment of diagnosis, the Foundation provides the practical information and tools people living with cancer need to live strong. The LAF supports people affected by cancer through research, advocacy, and public health programs.

    2006 is my fourth year raising funds and awareness for the LAF. This year, I will ride in the new LIVESTRONG Challenge Philadelphia on September 10, 2006. My goal is to raise at least $15,000, enough to be invited to participate in the Ride for the Roses in Austin, Texas, on October 15, 2006.

    Please join me in supporting the important work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation by making a secure online donation through this link.

    If you have any questions, please contact me at [email protected] or visit the LAF website to find out more about the Foundation and its work.

    Thank you for your support! Your donation will have far-reaching effects for those living with cancer, their loved ones and healthcare providers. Together, we can help every cancer survivor to live strong.

            I went to the CCC site but I couldn't find a place to join. I don't think I fit the profile. But, yes I would love to ride with that group. Scott let me know how to join CCC for that ride. Thanks

              Riders must commit to raise a minimum of $500, but the Ride for the Roses on October 15, 2006, is now an invitational event for those who raise at least $15,000.

              I hope to make it to Austin again this fall!

                  I'm glad we'll be riding together in Philadelphia!

                  I think you do fit the CCC profile: "The CCC is a group of cancer survivors, their families and friends, that provide support through sharing experiences about treatment, life, and our other passions in life, high among them cycling. Our members range in age from young to old; focus on road riding, mountain biking, and triathlons; range in cycling experience from recreational to racer; and we've had a wide range of cancers from the common to the rare. We pride ourselves on our family like atmosphere; we share our joyous moments along with our sad ones, finding strength in each other. Join our peloton, jump to the front to speak out, or just hang in, get some support and encouragement, and enjoy the ride!"

                  Instructions to join the CCC mailing list are on this page.

                    I don't know how to do that. All of my life I have only looked to myself and my wife. I just hope that I too can find my lemonade.

                      I think you do! You've shared plenty of joys here: your son's tattoos, your scuba diving vacation, your efforts to get a special bike to Austin for the Molenda family, your first century ride...

                        Everyone channels there joy and happiness differently--- You share your joy by helping and doing for others unselfishly--which you do daily here and I,m sure you do the same for all those around you and for that you are one of the finest people that I have had the pleasure of being aquainted with!!!!!

                            LIVESTRONG Ride Philadelphia

                            In June 2003, I got the diagnosis that changed my life. I had surgery for testicular cancer, which was followed by careful monitoring. A recurrence led to abdominal surgery in June 2005, and side effects afterward made for a difficult summer, but I was in good enough shape in time to return to Austin, Texas, for my second Ride for the Roses on October 23. I refuse to let cancer take control of my life!

                            I am not alone. More than 10 million Americans are currently living with, through or beyond cancer. More than 1.3 million people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with cancer this year alone. I am so fortunate that my cancer type has an extremely high survival rate. As cures are found for more and more cancers, the ranks of cancer survivors will continue to grow.

                            2006 marks my fourth year working to support the Lance Armstrong Foundation's mission to inspire and empower cancer survivors. Cancer survivor and champion cyclist Lance Armstrong founded the LAF in 1997, to provide practical information and tools for people living with cancer, through advocacy, public health, and research programs.

                            The Peloton Project has evolved into a series of five LIVESTRONG Rides across the country. In honor of my battle with cancer, and for all of those millions of people in the same fight, I'm participating in the LIVESTRONG Ride Philadelphia on September 10, 2006, with a team representing Cyclists Combating Cancer. I'm going to ride my bike 100 miles, and I hope to raise at least $15,000 for the Lance Armstrong Foundation, which will qualify me to take part in this year's Ride for the Roses on October 15, 2006.

                            I'm riding because I can! Preparing for this event helps prove that dealing with cancer has only made me stronger, and it lets me fulfill the "obligation of the cured" to contribute to the cancer community.

                            I know I can reach my goal with the support of friends and family like you. Would you please consider making a 2006 sponsorship donation? You can give online at www.livestrongride.org or by calling 877-743-3577.

                            Thank you so much for taking the time to read this message and understanding how important this cause and this Ride is to me. I'll keep you updated on my fundraising and training progress.

                              Kudos to Nancy

                              On one of our visits to Sloan Kettering Jason asked the doctors what cancer he was most likely to get from his 4EP. The overwhelming answer was Leukemia, the doctor’s felt that Jason (and most of you) have a better then twice the average chance of getting chemo caused leukemia. To be proactive Nancy and I went to a Leukemia society meeting last night. She has decided to do a Triathlon as a fundraiser for Leukemia research. I told her that I would do it with her but she said no thank you gave me a kiss and said that she had to do this alone. I couldn’t be prouder. She is and will always be the queen of my heart. Any of you who might be interested in doing something similar check out their web site. http://www.active.com/donate/tntnonj/tntnonjNMoses
