Imagine being told that your 18 month old son has Leukemia.
Imagine the pain of watching him as he suffers through Chemotherapy, Radiation and eventually a bone marrow transplant.
Imagine the stress of waiting for the results of the endless tests.
Imagine the roller coaster ride of being told that he is in remission, then that he has fallen out of remission or has some other problem associated with his treatment.
Imagine the joy of watching this boy grow into a passionate, sensitive young man, an advocate for the disabled, a role model to all his friends.
Imagine that at 16 he is diagnosed with a brain tumor, and that surgery is performed to remove it, followed by more chemo and radiation.
Imagine that at 19 yrs old, tests show that the tumor has returned, there is nothing more that can be done, and you are being sent home and told to enjoy what time you have left.                                                                                                                             Imagine watching your son slowly succumb to the brain tumor and never lose his faith, dignity, or sense of humor.

This is the story of my sister and brother-in-law and their son Scott Patrick Ross.

Imagine
that you can help find a cure and prevent other families from having to go through this.

We are dedicating our fund raising to the memory of our nephew Scotty Ross. 

Your donation, no matter how large or small becomes a symbol of hope to the children and their families, as they face the challenge of daily life, hoping the next medical discovery will be the key to a healthy future.

Donating through this site is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to make a contribution to our fund raising efforts. However, if you prefer to mail a check, make it out to the "Ride for Kids". Our address is: 4001 Merrill St, Torrance CA  90503. Many thanks for your support--and please forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate or participate in one of the rides too!

Jim, Jodi and Elizabeth Watkinson
