I couldn’t articulate this feeling before joining Texas 4000. T4K allowed me to realize the power I had and what I could do to address a massive problem. It’s obvious that cancer affects millions of people all around the world. I remember friends from high school who lost parents and I’ve known family friends who’ve lost their own children to cancer. You couldn’t help but notice the difference in the victim’s demeanor after a loved one had passed. The only thing I could do was try to empathize but I wished I could do more. Their sadness was heartbreaking and I didn’t know what else to do or say so that’s all I did. And for a while I thought I would be okay with just that.
Then I found Texas 4000. Texas 4000 provided me with a platform to enact change on a scale that I didn’t have before. Before T4K, I was taking my life and my family’s health for granted. I needed to do more because I can’t just watch peoples’ lives get changed by cancer and not do anything while I have the power to act. I’m in love with the knowledge that I have the opportunity to fight against cancer and I must take that opportunity. Texas 4000 inspired me to action. And I don’t have to face this challenge alone. In the short time I’ve been with my 2019 team I’m observing many individuals who are turning their tragedies into triggers for positive change and action. I depend on them to show me the actual challenges people have faced when being exposed to cancer. I ride to support the mission of Texas 4000 as well as to inspire hope to further generate positive action. I will not falter in that goal.
