Since the beginning of my commitment to the Illini 4000, I have gotten so many different reactions. Some of my friends have asked me what riding my bike across the country has to do with raising money for cancer research. Many of my friends have been asking me how this whole trip is going to work, where will we stay, what will we do if it rains? To me, that is what this whole trip is about. Just like all of those who have fought the battle of cancer, we are not sure what the future holds for us but, we are willing to give it our all. There is no doubt it is going to be difficult but I know we can do it. Though we may have different challenges ahead of us, together we will persevere!
