Bicycle Mojave and Beyond!
year’s adventure is dedicated to all of us who
are hopeful of that the Black Swan Research Initiative® will
produce results in the not too distant future.
It is a horizon that we all want to cross vertically.
I am very fortunate to be able to start this bicycle ride across central Europe. I will leave Zurich tomorrow and post as much and and often as I can. I will head south east across the Walensee east towards Liechtenstein and then up and over the Alps. I have had a great time getting acclimated here in Zurich thanks to Luise's brother Douglas. He is a friend I haven't met yet. He and Katherina left me a key and let me make myself at home---I did. I had lunch with some of their friends around Zurich and Lunch in Zug where my trial study for Multiple Myeloma came from. I have been busy. I have been invited to Vienna's Patient Family Seminar sponsored partly by IMF on June 25 so getting there with much time on my hands I should be seeing plenty and taking many gigs of pictures. I will be updating my Crazy Guy Site as often as I can
Crocs across Europe
I will also have my IMF fundraiser page for research updated to say that yes I am now riding in Europe.
You can donate on this page
I will be able to give you all quick updates from my Facebook and Twitter accounts from the phone. The down south adventures were some of the best thanks to so many peoples help---you know who you are!!
I expect more of the same to happen here in Europe because people are all basically nice.
Drop in on my sites occasionally,
It is up to each of us to try to have a
good quality of life, as we wait for science and medicine to make a better
future for us. Can we wait?—sure, we do it every time we have a blood
draw and have to wait for the results. Talk about anxiety in time!
There are many patients out there, with some doing better than others,
but all us patients need your help.
So as you can see I support IMF and it's work and they support me. I do have a IMF polo-shirt and hat that makes me sort of official! Now you can do something for all of us.
I would not have thought when I was diagnosed nearly 7 years ago that I would be able to do these adventures. Six years ago my life included extreme pain and suffering with multiple lesions on my spine and ribs as well as acute fatigue. After my treatments that included multiple bouts of radiation and, a trial study including chemo-therapies and an autologous stem cell transplant I have come out the other side. These last 5 years of bicycle adventures are my way giving back to all of us.
I am one of the lucky patients who require no maintenance therapies whatsoever. I am blessed right now and utilize my time to the fullest riding bicycle and raising awareness about this incurable illness inside us.
You might want to Donate to make a difference, so here is your chance!
Now here is my pitch--I would like you to donate through my website to
offer support to the IMF research division. I ride not only for me
but for all of us. This is your chance to do something good for those
less fortunate--me included.
I am finalizing my Crazy Guy on a Bike journal for the deepsouth adventure trip so if you want to have a peek I am wrapping it up.
Having fun experiencing life with people along my routes and raising multiple myeloma cancer awareness is my goal and so far it is a success.
Here is a sample of bits of publicity about multiple myeloma I pulled together along my journeys.
Lori Gilbert of the California Stockton Record newspaper did a nice article
