This is the first year Lisa Frank will be riding in spirit rather than in person. Lisa, one of my very best friends, lost her over 20 year battle with breast cancer on December 30, 2020, in the midst of the COVID pandemic.

This will be my 12th ride since 2006. It will be one day (Sunday, October 4th) instead of three (due to COVID), it is a 62 mile ride (a metric century), and is now called the Lisa J. Frank memorial ride. We are riding along the New Jersey shore, very close to where Lisa lived. Lisa was one of the original founders of the YSC, and the co-founder of the Tour de Pink. She was a five-time survivor, and lived with metastatic breast cancer for eight years. She lived many years longer than any of her doctors thought she could.

I will be riding in memory of Lisa, in memory of so many others who are no longer here from this awful disease, in honor of the amazing and strong women living with breast cancer who are kicking its butt and those who are long time survivors. I will be riding for my friends Gail, April, Lara, Jill, Mary, Karen, Duffy, Libby and so many others. I also will be riding in honor of those fighting other types of cancer, especially my husband Ted, who will be riding alongside me. Lisa was so invested in Ted’s recovery throughout 2020 despite her own condition.

We will be riding to raise money in support of the YSC (www.youngsurvival.org/tourdepink), the only international, non-profit network of breast cancer survivors dedicated to the concerns and issues that are unique to young women under the age of 40 with breast cancer. The YSC seeks to educate the medical, research, breast cancer and legislative communities and persuade them to address breast cancer in women 40 and under. The YSC also serves as a point of contact for young women living with breast cancer, most of whom have nowhere to turn to learn about breast cancer in young women like themselves. The pandemic has caused the YSC to shrink in size and support. In order to continue its mission, the YSC needs our help!!!

I ask you to please consider contributing what you can to this great cause.
