Woman and her grandson are cancer survivors who ride
Eighteen years ago, at age 38, Carolyn Wallace was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer. Years after chemotherapy and radiation, Carolyn is living cancer-free.
Then more devastating news: Her then 3-year-old grandson, Rylan, had leukemia.
“It was worse than my diagnosis,” Carolyn said.
Carolyn got involved with Bike to Beat Cancer in 2010. Last year, she encouraged Rylan, now 9, to join her. They plan to ride together again this year.
