Each year, I ride my motorcycle throughout the U.S. escorted by members of the motorcycle community promoting Breast Cancer Awareness and raising funds for Breast Cancer Research. Since the inception of DFAC in 2005, over 25,000 miles ridden and over $123,200.00 raised for Breast Cancer Research - Divas For A Cure is still dedicated to the mission.
Why is this cause so important to me? It's very personal. "I'm not just a Rider, I'm also a Survivor!" I am a three-time cancer survivor and also recovered from a cardiac arrest and a stroke.
