Why I Ride: Lauren Brigance

I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2014 and am so lucky to have recently celebrated two years in remission!  Since I started feeling better, I have been looking for a way to help other people going through the same thing and I finally found it.  I am so excited to be able to raise money for something that’s very important to me by doing something I love – cycling!

On September 25, 2016, I will be participating in Wheel to Survive, a six hour indoor cycling event to raise money to help women batting ovarian cancer today and to provide research dollars for a cure. The best part is 100% of the money I raise will go directly to fund these programs.

This is why I ride:

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.

Thank you so much for your generous support and joining me to be the difference in the fight against ovarian cancer.  I appreciate any donation you can make for this cause that’s so close to me.  My friends and family are the very best and I love you guys a ridiculous amount.

Register now to ride alongside Lauren and others at Wheel to Survive Houston 2017 as we fight to end ovarian cancer!
