Howdy dacotacee. I have a son that lives in Belton. I will be down there "possibly" for the 4th of July. Maybe we will see you.

revolutionarypassion write: I did some research and I found that there isn't any biker run for melanoma cancer, but a lot of bicycle runs for melanoma.
However, to support the cause for research and to find a cure, there is a web site that has the various color ribbons available for different awarenesses and they can be personalized.
A black ribbon symbolizes melanoma, sometimes orange is used as well.
The web site is personalizedcause dot com.
There is very little work being done for melanoma when compared to other types of cancers because there are not as many people to cure as the others. Breast cancer has over 100 different chemo's that can be used. Melanoma has six.
melanoma.org is a good website
Thanks for your help.
I will try the relay. I have never heard of one before. Maybe it can go around the boarders and up and down the coasts to circle the US symbolizing she irregular shape of a dangerous spot on the skin. hhhmmmmmmmmmmm This will take a lot of time to organize. gotta figure out how to do this. Each leg could be a different poker run.. But expanding from there, it would be a team relay where the last card from a local run is the first card given to your national teams' first rider in the next leg. That card makes the entire circle around the country. Record keeping would be a problem. Any suggestions? hmmmmmmm
I need some input here folks. This could be a lot of local runs but a team relay too. I know what I would call it. It will be the First Annual Jaunita V Gayle Memorial Run for Melanoma research. hmmmmmmmm... give me ideas please.
Thanks Seeme. I can find all kinds of rides for breast cancer, colon cancer, etc. But,one does it for Melanoma. That is what she had. I think I may just start one for melanoma and see if it will grow. I think it will be something different like a two day run that covers a couple of hundred miles each day. Not sure yet but I will come up with something different so it stands out. Maybe it could be a relay ride coast to coast or something.

Ain't none, this was just another Phantom Post that majically appeared from space and was taking up room at the top of the page so I was getting rid of it. Sorry about your wife, type in melanoma fund raisers into your address bar and I'm sure you'll find plenty to keep you busy for a while.
