I am riding the Courage Classic for the first time this summer as a way of giving hope, showing gratitude, and giving back to where I began. From Arthur Robinson’s clinical cytogenetics laboratory to genetics and specialty clinics (including the Hemophilia Treatment Center) as a genetic counselor, I had the privilege of caring for and supporting children and their families in times of crisis, solace, and celebration. These experiences are a humanizing reminder in my current ethics, equity, and human rights work at the National Cancer Institute where I champion data sharing to maximize the availability and utility of basic, clinical, and translational research and registry data.
I will be riding (or rather trying to keep up) with family-- Michael Wang who is the HTC Clinical Director, Cecilia Low Wang, and Maia Wang who are Courage Classic veterans on the Wheels of Justice cycling team.
The Courage Classic is a personal challenge and an opportunity for me to support the Wheels of Justice raise funds for the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders for pediatric cancer research, clinical services, and mental health and wellness care for patients and families.
Please consider partnering with me. Support positive outcomes and healthier futures for children. What you do matters because everyone DOES make a difference . . .
