I'm back on the bike!
On August 2nd, I will suit up for my 17th Pan Mass Challenge, and ride with Paul's Posse. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to type those words.
I consider the Posse the most important work of my life, because it supports life-saving work. Through your generosity over the years, we've raised $1.2million to fight orphan cancers like mine. Fellow Posse member and friend Dr. George Demetri's research team at Dana-Farber receives 100% percent of the monies Paul's Posse collects.
While I'll be on the bike, I won't be able to complete the full day's ride. For me, that's simply a reminder that this work must go on. Together, we're chipping away at defeating a horrible enemy. But we need to keep doing what we can in order to save lives -- mine, yours, or someone we love.
In addition to your financial support, I'd like to ask one more favor. Please solicit a donation from just one other friend or family member, and insure that if your employer has a matching program, that they too participate in this worthy work. Just think of how much more we can accomplish in our effort to rid our lives of this horrible disease if we broaden our network of giving.
Your tax-deductible check can be made payable to PMC/Jimmy Fund and you can mail it to me. Alternatively, you can use your credit card to make a donation on line http://www2.pmc.org/profile/PS0036
Thank you for what you have already done. Your support that allows me to keep working towards conquering this killer, but we can't give up.
