"Cancer isn't Contagious, but HOPE is!"

"Cancer isn't contagious, but hope is!"
- Cindi Hart

On Monday I had the special honor of joining the Cyclist Combating Cancer for part of their Spokes of Hope ride into Washington, DC. Spokes of Hope is group of dedicated cancer survivors and care givers who are using cycling as a means to support the fight against cancer – they’re cycling from town to town and cancer center to center across the country to talk to patients and medical professionals about the importance of the cancer fight. Spreading the message of hope along the roads of our community, we rode from Towson, MD into downtown Baltimore City to visit staff and patients at the University of Maryland Marlene & Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. From meeting with the leadership of the Cancer Center to patients to medical professionals, the day was one filled with appreciation and admiration for all that’s being done by so many to fight this humbling disease.

A special thanks to all the Spokes of Hope riders and support team for taking on this initiative and for visiting the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults Young Adult Patient Navigation Program at the University of Maryland Marlene & Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. We’re honored to be a small part of their journey to bring change.

Another thank you to everyone at the University of Maryland Cancer Center (staff, patients & families included) for welcoming in the Cyclist Combating Cancer on this special visit and having drinks and cookies upon our arrival!
