Have Bike, Will Ride

So many cycling events, so little time! First up, LIVESTRONG Action's virtual Tour of California is almost half over, and we're holding steady in the 60s positions, so please keep cheering! Click HERE once a day, everyday, through May 23rd and help Georgia help LIVESTRONG in the global fight against cancer. Tell your real friends, your Facebook friends, and anyone you meet how they can cheer for us - all it costs is a few seconds of your time!

Next up, on June 4th, the the longest charity ride in the world kicks off - the Texas 4000 for Cancer! A team of Longhorns, brave and true, (ok, and maybe a few Aggies, too) are riding from Austin to Anchorage, Alaska and fighting cancer every mile. Folks in the ATX might see team members collecting donations at traffic stops around town over the next few weeks, but anyone can make donations on the team site here. These kids have trained so hard, and what an accomplishment that will be for them - not only covering that distance, but also riding to a future without cancer. Give them a hand, won't you?

And finally, on June 6th, the hardest working man in fundraising, Super Will, is taking on his second century ride in a month! He's nearing his fundraising goal but could use your help to put him over the top. Click HERE or in the sidebar to visit Will's Team in Training page and know that through your support of Will and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, patients like Georgia benefit from increased research, improved medicines, and, one day, a CURE!

Back to the clinic tomorrow for IV medicines and to start another round of Erwinia shots - as always, prayers and positive thoughts appreciated! THANK YOU!
