Why I ride? Simple. Because without research I wouldn't be here to ride. My story is ironic, raw, hopeful and tragic all at once.

On August 25, 2018, after a week of struggling with a open sore on my foot from what we thought was an insect bite, my primary care physician told me to admit myself to Fairview Hospital.  It was there in the Emergency Room that my wife Bridget and I first heard the word LEUKEMIA from an oncologist and the ER Doctor.

In September of 2015, Owen Timura noticed a lump in his lower abdomen. This lump was thought to be an infection and he was treated for several weeks with antibiotics. This stubborn lump refused to go away so it was suggested that he have surgery to just simply drain it. On November 13, 2015, Owen went in for surgery but unfortunately this healthy and active 8 year old boy was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Anaplastic Large Cell Lymphoma.

My cancer journey began in November 2016 with a random, unrelated pain. I saw a new doctor who noticed an odd test result from the year before, when I was pregnant with my daughter. After further testing I was diagnosed with Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma, a very rare vascular sarcoma that has presented itself in my liver.
