Why I Ride: Jessica Aviles

 

I have been blessed with 3 beautiful children, 2 boys and our newest addition, a baby girl, born December 2015. My Mom was there, as she always has been, helping through it all. When my little girl was still in her first month we received the shocking and devastating news that my Mom had stage 3 ovarian cancer and it rocked our world to the core. Thankfully my Mom was blessed with amazing doctors, surgeons and nurses and of course an outpouring of love and support from family and friends. I am so grateful and thank God that I can this day say that not only is my Mom a SURVIVOR she is MY HERO! I ride for my Mom and for all women, including my baby girl, to find a cure.

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.

Sadly, 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 April 30, 2017, I will be participating in Wheel to Survive, an inspirational four 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!
