Why I Ride - Dr. Jerry Radich

Dr. Jerry Radich, 4th year rider and member of Fred Hutch’s Clinical Research Division, researching molecular genetics of leukemia and the detection of minimal residual disease.

I ride because I am weary of friends and family members getting cancer, and too often dying from it. I ride because I have given too many eulogies for dear friends.  I ride because of the pain and suffering cancer causes my patients and their families. I ride to end cancer, to obliterate it.
