Melanie Christensen's story

BellRinger is a bike ride and a year-round effort to end cancer. Our movement is motivated by a community of Riders, Virtual Riders, volunteers, and donors working together to further our impact. I've made a commitment to fundraising, and I invite you to join me by donating to my effort and supporting life-saving cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.
I was diagnosed with cancer in 2020. I went through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation as part of my treatment. Today I am recovering from all the treatment I have received and work on getting to a healthier place for myself. Recurrence is something that will always be at the back of my mind. My participation with bellringer this year is to celebrate getting through, paying it forward to others and supporting continuing research especially for MBC. Innovation for the future is integral for making discoveries and creating newer, less harsh treatments. Cancer Sucks, let's "beep" cancer by coming together to support local research!
