Being on the road sometimes presents an opportunity to visit a patient in the hospital who is dealing with the symptoms of or treatment of colon cancer, desmoid or familial adenomatous polyposis (FAP) and some really brave souls even join the FACEiT project from their hospital beds. These visits are a very special part of Destination X Ride, for both those being visited and our rider/visitor. Photos and stories of past visits to be posted soon(ish).
We hope to partner with some of our favorite organizations providing care for those dealing with illness to also be able to deliver some comforting gifts.
If you have an upcoming planned hospital stay (or wind up with one unplanned) around the time/location of one of the planned DXR stops and would like see a friendly, albeit perhaps slightly unshaven face, from a fellow survivor, and share some tales from the road, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
