WHAT: Bryan Young and Carol Defibaugh and her daughter, Charlotte and her husband, Ryan, are all participating in the Living Beyond Surviving team at the Be the Match Walk/Run in St. Louis.  She hopes the fun peeps will join her in this awesome event!

Charlotte was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in March 2009.  After six months of chemo and months of radiation, she was declared in remission.  They Lymphoma came back in about eight months.  They found a donor and she had a bone marrow transplant in July 2011.  It was a rough road, but she is now cancer-free and able to resume her life!!   Charlotte has recently passed the tests for HS English and Psychology Teaching Certification.  The family has Charlotte's bone marrow donor, to thank for the gift of life.

Please consider participating in the walk/run to help raise money for others to have a shot at life, like Charlotte has.  If you cannot participate, please consider being a match or donating to help Be the Match.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
