Charles DeSantis's story

Dear Friends and Family,
I invite you to take part in the inaugural Bellringer ride - benefiting Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center on October 22, 2022. I ask you to join me on behalf of all of those that we know who have or had cancer, have won or lost the battle and to raise much needed funds for care and cancer research performed at our Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

My mother, Mary DeSantis, is a three-time cancer survivor and has been treated and continues to be treated at Lombardi right in the community I live and work. We are fortunate to be able to access care at this amazing center. We are lucky that she has been able to overcome cancer not once but thrice in her life. Cancer can be horrible and have a devastating effect, there are also curative opportunities that happen because of the great work of the Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center. I am so very fortunate to have my mom still in my life at 81 years young and a cancer survivor. Let's fight together to provide other great outcomes for people. I hope you'll consider donating to this great cause. On October 22, let's make a difference together. Let's be part of this movement together. I will ride anywhere between 25-100 miles for the cause and hope that you will donate.

THANK YOU for for choosing to join me and donating to something that has personally or tangentially impacted each and everyone of us. Thank you for being on this journey with me.

Be well
Charles DeSantis
