On September 10th, 2007, five fathers cycled 3700 miles across the United States, from Sacramento California to Washington DC. Their mission was to raise awareness and money for cutting edge treatments that can be used to fight an aggressive childhood cancer called neuroblastoma - a cancer that all of their children fight.
Neuroblastoma is very rare. Because it is rare, treatment options are limited and funding for these cutting edge treatments does not flow freely from large non-profit organizations. The funding for research and development of new therapies comes from parents and families like these, who are faced with limited options to save their children.
We ask that you join us and help raise the funds needed to save our kids. We can't do it without your help. We would like to invite you to follow our journey, to record the ups and downs, and to get the message out that we are willing to do anything to raise this money to help our daughters and sons. Travel with us on The Loneliest Road.
