A thunderbolt struck me last March. I joined the millions of people around the world that define themselves as cancer patients. This is my story, well...a tiny part of it and this live journal chronicles my journey across the country in my attempt to give this a meaning.
I am cycling across the country because I want to beat this, I want to see it through to the last round and I want to see what kind of person comes out the other end. I am aware that fighting the road does not make a fighter, fighting cancer does. I want to send out a call to action to the people that are following this fight and a message of hope to those that are sick and feel hopeless.
I think the moment we give up our dreams is the moment we begin to die.
