Don’t act like a player be a player. Katie Goodwick use to say this to my son and the kids she babysit sat for. She made the world fun, celebrated holidays with a flare, told it to the kids straight and had a wicked sense of humor. I still have her number in my phone because I can’t seem to delete it. She died last year after a short and horrible fight with melanoma. She was really one of those cases that she was walking around one day and next day she was hospitalize and intubated. She was 34 years old, she had cared for her mother as she died from lung cancer and then cared for her employer when she had breast cancer. She was a fighter but overnight she went from seemly healthy to being diagnosed with Stage 4 melanoma.
Last year when I rode for Tour de Pier I thought of Katie, I sobbed for her because it was too much that she was suffering the way she was. She lost her fight just a few days after Tour de Pier. Katie was far too young, because of my faith I know she is in a better place but her loss has left a whole in many peoples world. That is why I ride to CANCEL CANCER.
There are too many people out there fighting cancer. If I can do just a little bit to move the needle closer to eradicating cancer than I will. If you can donate by sponsoring me, please do. If not please send up a prayer that Tour de Pier is successful, for those missing Katie and to CANCEL CANCER!
Please stop by our bike and cheer us on if you are around May 19th.
God bless and thank you,
