Read on....the story is heart wrenching.
Soren McFalls of Newfane, V.T. was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on June 5, 2020. He was admitted to Dartmouth Hospital about an hour away from his home. Against the landscape of the pandemic, this situation is compounded by new complexities. In order to maintain Soren's treatment, Soren’s mother has left her job as a preschool director.
Due to concerns about COVID-19 and his weakened immune system, his 4-year-old sister was pulled from preschool. Soren has an intense treatment plan set for the next few months and his doctors expect chemotherapy to continue for several years.
Uncle Pat will be riding to raise funds to support Soren’s hospital bills and the family’s expenses as they adjust to life with this diagnosis on a single-income. He will begin his 24-hour ride at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 22, 2020. Pledges-per-mile are being accepted at https://pledgeit.org/cycleforsoren.
Any supporter who can guess the exact mileage Uncle Pat completes in 24-hours will get a custom bike jersey, featuring illustrations by Soren’s dad, an artist. One loop of the 24-hour course will be 14.5 miles with an elevation gain of 1,087 feet.
