Thanks for visiting the Pedal Pushers' National Page! My name is Chloe Glover and I am a Connecticut native, now living in New York City.
I was diagnosed at age 11 with a rare cancer known as Ewing’s Sarcoma in March of 2004. I was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) by the wonderful Sarcoma Team and Dr. Paul Meyers.
Ewing's Sarcoma is one of the rarest cancers out there, with only 200-250 children diagnosed a year. I am very fortunate to have had such great care and to have had people dedicated to finding a protocol/cure for my rare cancer. As I celebrate 16 years of being cancer free I am so grateful to give back in this way.
I first participated in Cycle for Survival in 2016 and I was moved and inspired by every person I saw, listened to, and spoke to. Everyone’s dedication to this cause, survivor’s stories, and the passion was unbelievable.
I ride because I owe my survivorship to research and I ride for all the children on the 9th floor at MSKCC right now so they too can benefit from targeted cancer research. I am privileged to ride alongside other survivors and I am honored to support everyone currently battling rare cancers and for all those who we remember.
We have now ridden for the past three years in Connecticut, past two in NYC and are now expanding the Pedal Pushers presence to San Francisco! In 2016, our first year riding, we raised over $6,000. In 2017 we raised over $12,000 and in 2018 over $18,000. In 2019 a little over $23,000! This year our goal is to raise $24,000.
I am so thankful for MSKCC, the wonderful women and men I have riding on my team, and my family and friends who have supported our rides for the beginning. Without them, none of this would be possible!
Together, we can give doctors and researchers the resources they need to combat these diseases. We can also help children who are in the same position I was, to benefit from the advances of targeted cancer research!
