The Pedal Partner program is a wonderful way for riders to connect with a child who has been affected by cancer. Our Pedal Partner is truly the face of our Ride.
This year our pedal partner is Poppie from Marshfield.
Poppy is a charismatic, engaging, and talkative three year old. She loves to be with her friends, color, do puzzles, and you can often catch her putting on a song and dance routine! Poppy was diagnosed with retinoblastoma (a tumor on her retina) at the age of 4 months. With the timely diagnosis and treatment, Poppy was considered to be in remission before her first birthday. She continues to see her opthalmologist, Dr. Ankoor Shah, every twelve weeks for an exam under anesthesia to ensure that there isn't any tumor regrowth. Throughout all of her treatments and followup exams, Poppy has never lost her happy-go-lucky disposition! With each subsequent office exam, Poppy's vision continues to improve.
