There are two reasons that I am riding:
1. June 22, 1994 my wife and I gave birth to our daughter Brianna Nicole Simmons. The joy of her birth was short as she became terribly ill and left this world for heaven 7 days later. Except for a few hours at home she spent the remaining time with us in the NICU unit at Childrens Hospital @ Medical College of Georgia. The professionals there worked tirelessly to treat our daughter as well as us. Without their strength and diligence I believe my wife and I would have fell apart.
2. I lost my Dad, Donald Eugene Simmons to Mesothilioma who I am riding for. I want to be a part of this fundraiser because 100% of the funds raised go directly to cancer research. Help me to reach my goal for my daughter and my dad. I love and miss them both terribly.
Together we can help find a cure!
