Spin cycle ride to fight cancer in Ridgeland


MORE THAN A 100 PEOPLE STARTED TO SPIN THEIR WAY TO RAISE MONEY TO FIGHT OVARIAN CANCER. 16 WAPTS ALLIE WARE WAS THERE FOR THE SECOND OVARIAN CYCLE. ONE YEAR AGO LORI NEWCOMB BROUGHT THE OVARIAN CYCLE TO RIDGELAND MISSISSIPPI. DOCTORS DIAGNOSED HER WITH OVARIAN CANCER AND SHE WAS FIGHTING BACK. SOMETIMES YOU WANT TO CRAWL UP IN A CORNER AND DEAL WITH IT ALONE BUT WHAT I HAVE FOUND IS THAT SO MANY WOMEN NEED TO HEAR WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH. MOST WOMEN DON’T KNOW MUCH ABOUT THE SYMPTOMS OF OVARIAN CANER SO SHE REACHED OUT TO OCRF AND ONE OF THE EVENTS HAPPENED TO BE SPIN AND THAT WAS MY WIFE’S FAVORITE THING TO DO WAS GO TO SPIN CLASS. AND SHE USED HER LOVE OF SPIN TO HELP OTHERS. NOW OF COURSE THE OVARIAN CYCLE IS TO RAISE MONEY FOR RESEARCH BUT RIDERS HERE SAY MORE IMPORTANTLY THEY GAIN SUPPORT FROM EACH OTHER. I JUST MET A WOMAN WHO WAS A 20 YEAR SURVIVOR AND THAT JUST GIVES YOU A LIFE BECAUSE AT FIRST YOU THINK YOU ARE DOOMED BUT YOU AREN’T. IM HERE RIDING IN HONOR OF MY WIFES MOTHER WHO DIED OF OVARIAN CANER SIX YEARS AGO MORE THAN A 150 RIDERS, ALL WITH ONE GOAL – BEATING OVARIAN CANCER. THE PRIMARY GOAL OF THIS EVENT AND THE MONTH LEADING UP TO IT IS TO EDUCATE WOMEN OF SIGNS AND SYMPTONS OF OVARIAN CANCER. IN RIDGELAND AW 16 WAPT NEWS THE GOAL FOR THIS YEARS OVARIAN CYCLE IS RAISE OVER 120 THOUSAND DOLLARS TO DONATE TO THE OVARIAN CANCER RESEARCH FUND. THIS IS OVARIAN CANCER AWARENESS MONTH.
