A Survivor

Last Saturday (June 30th) I rode to honor a friend. Some of her story is here. She is a hell of a lady and a survivor, a breast cancer survivor. I truly believe that if she set her mind to it, there is nothing she couldn’t do.

As you can imagine, being faced with and coming to terms with ones own mortality causes one to put things in a whole new priority level. One of her must do’s is ride a Harley. Not just down the street, but on a ride. It has been some time since we agreed to do a ride and currently she is off in Halifax, Nova Scotia checking off other items on her list. Between my schedule and hers we can’t seem to get this done, so I went alone, for her last Saturday.

I don’t have any pictures but there will be some here at
www.rockforthecure.com, eventually.

Also, if you live in the Indy area,
Steel Horse will air some footage of the ride Sunday night. The show is from 10:30 to 11:00 on MY-NDY (channel 23).

So, check it out and like Steve says – “Be There!”


BTW - The Pink is to honor all breast cancer survivors!!

You know, I admire you more and more all the time.

Real men DO do pink, and proudly, in certain situations.

Thanks Freddie. I'm flattered.

Amen Brother! I hope she sees this!

Proud to call you my friend.

DNR said...

Thanks Dazed, as am I proud to call you.

It's been a trying week, as I'm sure you can imagine.

Good on you, DNR. I hope that somehow you'll be able to work out a time to go on a ride with her in person.

You have a heart as big as your Harley.

Queen - Thaks and yes we do.

Wiz - If we can talk her into coming back from the 'great white north' we will... and this summer with any luck.
