Why I Ride: Alan Yonack

As you may know, Sheryl and I have been actively involved in this organization since Day 1. Our dear friend, Helen Gardner (pictured with me) asked us if we would join her in creating Be the Difference in 2011. You see, Helen was battling Stage 4 ovarian cancer. Between fighting the disease and working to get Be the Difference started, she had her hands full, so we were glad to to be part of such an important cause. The organization has raised and donated more that $1,700,000 to help find a early detection test as well find a cure, and this year, I again, am reaching out to you to assist in this very important cause.

The facts below are staggering:

  • One woman is diagnosed with ovarian cancer every 24 minutes. 22,000 women this year.
  • One woman dies from ovarian cancer every 37 minutes. 15,000 women this year.
  • 70% of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will die from the disease.
  • There is no reliable early detection test available for ovarian cancer.

These women are our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends and they deserve better. We all deserve better.

On February 26, 2017, I will be participating in Wheel to Survive, an inspirational six hour indoor cycling event to raise money to help women batting ovarian cancer today and to provide research dollars for a cure. 100% of the money I raise will go to fund these programs.

Please help me reach my goal by making a tax deductible donation today. You can also help me reach my goal by sharing my page or link with your friends by email or social media. Better yet, register today and come ride with me!

Thank you for your generous support and joining me to be the difference in the fight against ovarian cancer. Our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends are counting on us. The time is NOW!.

Thank you for your consideration.

Alan
