Biography

Historic Route 66
One Bike
One Reason

When my brother John was diagnosed with oral cancer in 2005 I had no idea the battle he would be facing today. My knowledge and exposure to oral cancer was limited.

To witness his humor, determination, and courage in the face of so much adversity, it is impossible to sit back and not get involved. The result has been route2outsmartcancer, a grass-roots effort to relieve some of his financial burden as well as raise awareness of oral cancer.

My goal is to cycle across the country, traveling Route 66 from our hometown of Glen Ellyn, IL to his present home in Costa Mesa, CA.
