On January 13th, 2014, my brother Wally Lee passed away with his family by his side. How could such a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and brother be unjustly taken from us?
There is no cure for Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma, a very aggressive soft tissue cancer. Wally's cancer was only the fifth reported case of Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma in history. Cancer is a cruel disease. Unlike a parasite, which does not kill its host, cancer will kill its host and devastate the lives of everyone around them.
The moment Wally passed away, I told myself I would not sit by and watch; I committed myself to the game. The game is to bring awareness to Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma, and to support research for a cure to Dedifferentiated Liposarcoma and all cancers. As long as I can ride a bicycle, there will be a Team Wally Lee in Obliteride. Please help not only the Wally Lee Team but also everyone who has made a commitment to fighting cancer.
This August, Team Wally Lee will ride to accelerate the pace of lifesaving, breakthrough cancer research happening at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Team Wally Lee will put all their energy toward raising $3,000.00.
With 100% of every dollar donated going directly to cancer research at Fred Hutch, together we can impact research now that will save lives. Donating to Team Wally Lee is fun! You can donate now on the team’s fundraising page, http://getinvolved.fhcrc.org/goto/WallyLee.
Please make your donations to the entire team and not the individual riders. My brother’s team is not about which individual can raise the most money but how much the entire team can raise for cancer research.
TO DONATE TO THE TEAM Please go to the Donate to this Team button on the upper right of your screen.
Thank you for visiting Team Wally Lee, Captain: Ron Lee
