Welcome to Campaign with Mission Melanoma 4!
As you may already know my beautiful mother went through some tough times this past year. She found a lump in her leg and the pathology report revealed metastic melanoma. The side effects she experienced from the immunotherapy treatment meant multiple admissions in the hospital. Finally last month the sky opened up and her scan revealed no trace of melanoma! Recently I found out about the Breakthrough Bike Challenge from my mom's oncologist, Dr. Lynn Schuchter. My family is so grateful for my mom's medical team at the University of Pennsylvania and 100% of participant-raised funds go to support Penn Medicine’s Abramson Cancer Center. Your donation fuels the research that will deliver breakthroughs! My brother Dave and I will each be riding 50 miles in honor of our mom. We want to be involved in this challenge to show our support in the fight against melanoma. I am reaching out to friends and family and asking for a small donation to help reach our goals. We are lucky to have our mom back and healthy again, she is incredibly strong and resilient to make it through many of those tough days. We feel the least we can do is to donate our time and do something we love in appreciation of everything she has done for us over the years.
The Breakthrough Bike Challenge is Sunday, September 16th!
