Long bike ride from Eureka to chemo

[From The Patch]

It’s already a long trip from Nicole Nada’s home in Eureka to see her doctor in Greenbrae. Her next trip is going to take a lot longer.

Nicole is planning to embark on a bike trip, beginning in Eureka on May 15 and ending at the Marin Cancer Institute in Greenbrae on May 21, just in time for her first round of chemotherapy.

What a way to arrive. She’s blogging about her journey on her site www.kickingmycancer.com.

“Why the ride? Three reasons, most importantly for myself — I love to cycle and be active and it seemed like the perfect way to arrive at chemotherapy, something I am not crazy about receiving, but know I need,” Nicole said. “My blood will be pumping, and I will feel healthy and strong going into it and that is important to me. Then, to inspire others if they need/want inspiration, and lastly to raise some funds for two wonderful organizations.”

    Good luck on both your trip and your treatments.

    Yet another cancer amid an unreported epidemic. Nicole is extremely fortunate to have a supportive family, and friends in the right places. An excellent candidate for early recovery.

    We’ve had so many warnings for half a century…where’s the health section of every “community” newspaper? The author of the watershed book “Living Downstream”, Dr. Sandra Steingraber, decided to become a scientist after her mother succumbed to breast cancer, and then Sandra contracted it. She passes around a jar of breast milk during her lectures to describe the most toxic food on Earth.

    The next “occupy” movement could be health-inspired. Or, it could be over a media that systematically censors alternative, sustainable, cleaner, safer, happier, longer lifestyles.

    What a remarkable person!
    I look forward to following her blog and pray for her speedy recovery.

    All my good vibes to you, Nicole, from 8,000 miles away. Two women, very close to me have been through the chemo ordeal, and they are both happy and healthy these many years later.
