portia purcell


This year, I'm riding for my mom. The lung cancer that spread to her brain robbed me of time with her. This past November, my mom finally succumbed to the brutal illness that took away small pieces of her little by little. What it did to my family, I would not wish upon anyone. Watching my mom battle this disease for 5 years (4 more than originally thought) has inspired me to ride this year. I hope that I can be part of the solution and give more families extra years with their loved ones. F$%@CK You Cancer.
