Cycling to raise awareness and save lives!

My name is Cesar Rodarte (CC '06), and I am currently training to participate in a 100-mile bike ride as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society with my girlfriend, Lenore Estrada. As you may know, Lenore was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma June of 2007. She recently completed chemotherapy and radiation treatment, and we are currently waiting to find out if Lenore's cancer is gone. June 2008 is when we will find out and this coincides with our 100-mile bike ride in Lake Tahoe.

Lenore has been fortunate enough to receive great care. While chemotherapy and radiation therapies have saved many lives, a cure still doesn't exist for everyone. Cancer research has made big strides, but there is a lot that still can be done. Participating as a member of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society is one way in which I am trying to make a difference.

We are raising funds to help stop Hodgkin's lymphoma from taking more lives. I'm completing this event in honor of Lenore. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated. You can submit donations online or if you'd like to send a check, just email me for more information at This email address is hidden from email harvesters via JavaScript

Thanks for your support!
