Compliance Building is a free resource I publish for me, and share with you, to help the compliance profession.
Now I need some of your hard-earned money. I should point out that the money is not for me; It’s for charity. Help me fight cancer, by raising money for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
I’m riding the Pan Mass Challenge in 2017 and hope you will consider supporting me this year. [Click here to make a donation]
Your money will go to help kids like Maya. She is my PMC team’s pedal partner this year.
In January, Maya turned five years old. A month later, doctors found a large mass on one of her kidneys. Maya has Clear Cell Sarcoma, a very rare renal cancer. Maya went through surgery to remove the mass and has completed six days of radiation. The next step is seven months of chemotherapy to beat her cancer. Maya’s mom reported that Maya is taking her treatments in stride as only a five year old who loves unicorns can. They are seeing to positive results!
I ride the Pan-Mass Challenge because I believe the money it raises makes a difference in the fight against cancer. It’s making a difference for Maya.
If you’ve read this far, you are either a very dedicated reader of Compliance Building or have also been touched by cancer. Unfortunately, most people have been touched by this terrible disease.
Last year, I lost my best friend to cancer. Jeff was diagnosed with cancer just before Thanksgiving 2015. This terrible disease killed him just two months later. Jeff and I grew up with Dave. After Dave’s mom died of cancer, Dave formed Team Kinetic Karma and I first rode my first Pan-Mass Challenge.
I came back to ride again when Dave was diagnosed with cancer. He fought back and won. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute helped him beat back the disease.
Then my dad was diagnosed with cancer. He fought back and won. The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute helped him beat back the disease. But his sister, brother, and mother (my aunt, uncle and Nana) did not win and lost their battles with cancer.
We are hoping that Maya will win her battle. Your donations will help.
100% of your donation to my PMC ride will go the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. The Pan- Mass Challenge is the biggest source of income for Dana-Farber.
Compliance Building readers have been very generous. So many of you have donated in the past and helped me to achieve my fundraising goal. (Many you have already donated this year and I apologize for this additional request.)
The Pan Mass Challenge ride is 192 miles over two days from Sturbridge to Provincetown. If I hit my fundraising goal, I will add another 100 miles on a third day of riding from the New York border over the Berkshires to Sturbridge.
