Twelve and a half years ago, on April 9th, 2007, I was cured of Prostate Cancer. The disease was caught very early and at age 52, the best chance of the cancer not to return was to have a nerve sparing radical prostatectomy. One week later, my surgeon called me at home and told me he had good news, "the Lymph Nodes are negative and there is no need for further treatment"! Wow....no chemo, no radiation and to this day no sign of any Prostate Cancer. I was one lucky guy.
I recall my cancer experience because this Sunday, I will be Emceeing an event that will feature cancer survivors, those currently dealing with cancer and receiving treatment and remembering those that cancer took from out lives. The type of cancer we will be focused on is Breast Cancer and beginning at 9 a.m. this coming Sunday morning, at Rubber City Harley Davidson, at Howe and Main Street (Chapel Hill), thousands of bikers, riders, survivors, families and more will come together for Bikers for Boobs, to benefit Stewart's Caring Place, an organization that offers support and so much more to Breast Cancer victims, survivors and their families.
It all starts with breakfast for the participants in the parking lot of Rubber City Harley Davidson. Stewart's Caring Place will have a booth set up and will be available to answer questions, talk about medical options and more. There will also be vendor tents set up in the lot and 97.5 WONE will be there, too, to provide some music and to help with announcements prior to the Poker Run.
If you haven't registered for the ride, NO WORRIES! You can still sign up to participate this coming Sunday morning. Here are some of the particulars. The cost is $20 per rider and $10 per person for just the after ride dinner and entertainment. First Bike out at 10:30 a.m. Last bike out at 12:30 p.m. Last bike in at 4 p.m. Dinner and entertainment begins at 3 p.m. featuring the Buck Naked Band, at the Summit County Fairgrounds. 100% of the proceeds benefit Stewart's Caring Place, in Fairlawn.
There will be a FREE photo booth, a 50/50 drawing, raffles and door prize and prizes for the "best hand". Bring a new or gently used bra to donate to Breast Oasis and receive an extra door prize entry.
Unfortunately the battle against Breast Cancer is not over, but with Biker's for Boobs, we can continue to help make strides to find a cure for this deadly disease. I personally hope to see you Sunday morning, at 9 a.m., at Rubber City Harley Davidson. For more information simply click here
