Where's the Media????
Okay, I've talked about Jane Tomlinson in my other blogs and on my website doingitherway.com Jane has terminal cancer. She is doing this ride across American for two reasons, She's raising funds for various cancer research and she rides to show that people with a terminal prognosis can still lead an active and fruitful life. Death doesnÂt arrive with the prognosis. Jane was told she had 12 months to live back in 2000.
As she rides these last few days completing her 4000 mile bike ride in New York -- the media has pretty much avoided her story. Why? This is the biggest endurance event done by someone with terminal cancer in the world!
There's a good chance if you're reading this someone you knew or know, has cancer. I had a good friend pass away from cancer at it was not easy seeing her so sick. Jane is so brave, still very sick, and just completing chemotherapy just a few weeks before she started out on this endeavor. You know this is something very dear to her heart.
Please read her travel diary from today: http://janesappeal.com/?m=2006&w=35
If you can contribute, even just a little -- it will make a difference. If you know she's coming through your town, let the media know. Cheer her on these last few days that she has on this ride. Let's show her how proud we are of her determination and her desire to give hope to others who are suffering from Cancer.
