Every year, so many people — sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands and wives — experience the same hopelessness that we felt when cholangiocarcinoma - an extremely rare cancer of the bile duct - affected our mom (friend/sister/aunt/wife) Lynn in 2014. With a scarcity of funding and research, rare cancers often present patients with little hope in the fight.
But in a life filled with love, Lynn Scheitrum embodied giving, putting others continually above herself. She breathed life into all she touched. She had a smile that lit up every room. And after a multi-year battle with cholangiocarcinoma, her family, friends and everyone she touched through her presence or by stories, want to continue that fight for her. To keep her memory, spark and smile alive by ensuring that fewer and fewer families each year have to go through what she did. To ensure that, in her strength that she showed, she could create hope for generations to come.
We hope you’ll support Team Lynn as we ride from coast to coast in honor of Lynn and all others who have been affected, and in support of all of the caretakers, their families, and their friends. Remember that every single dollar you donate will make a significant impact in the lives of rare cancer patients worldwide.
Thank you! We are tremendously grateful for your support.
