Welcome To My Fundraising Page!
The Scenic Shore 150 Bike Tour is a 2 day, 150 mile cycling event to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. With 68 chapters spanning the US and Canada, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is dedicated to funding blood cancer research, education and patient services. The mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.  Since it’s founding in 1949, the Society has invested more than 1.2 billion in leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma research.

My own personal experience with these illnesses dates to childhood when a 5 year old neighbor died of Acute Leukemia. I will never forget the incredible feeling of futility and hopelessness that his illness and death left in us. This undoubtedly was a major contributing factor in my later decision to pursue training in cancer and blood related diseases after completion of my Internal Medicine training. I am happy to report that now many of these diseases are curable and almost all are treatable with prolongation of life and improvement in quality of life. Research funded by The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has led to key advances in understanding blood cancers and the life-saving drugs to fight them.

In 2008 we formed The ProHealth Care Regional Cancer Center bike team to help raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We have participated in the SS 150 every year since then. Recently the team name was changed to Cyclo-therapy but the goal is still the same...to raise money to help cure blood cancers and help those unfortunate individuals with these difficult diseases.  Please be generous. So many people will be benefitted by your kindness. Thank you!

As a two-time non-Hodgkin's survivor (1991 and 2006), I am well aware of the difficulty cancer causes to both the patient and their caregivers. I am honored to help those that will one day make cancer a journey no one person will to take.
Russ Roberson,
This is a most worthy cause to support. So much progress has been made in the understanding of the molecular biology of this group of diseases in the past decade, frequently leading to innovative approaches to treatment. Hopefully the research will lead to accurately identifying high risk genetic factors in routine screening before the disease is manifested clinically.
Jerry and Kathi Hanson,
