    Without your guidance we would not be in the industry here in North America and without your support we would not have remained a member of LEVA.

    With a personal knowledge of what your are bravely going through, I pray only great things come as a result of your treatment. It is for you and others extremely close to us that we developed the breast cancer bike and we can only hope that the proceeds we donate will do good for others.

    You have always taken the time to respond with positive answers and honest evaluations even in the midst of your diagnosis. This recognition is well deserved and our company and my family wish you a safe recovery and a long and eventful life!
