Subject: Inspiration From CCC

Dear Family & Friends -

Attached is a link to (and copy of) an article about a friend of mine from Cyclists Combating Cancer. Scott raised $12 million in venture capital for his startup company last year while undergoing chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. There is another inspiring CEO story as well. I am certain I could not have logged 100,000 miles visiting customers this year.

I continue to believe we cannot take the obstacles put in our way "lying down". Its important for me to keep firmly in mind as I head towards my 6th round of chemotherapy. No final decision yet but I might continue on for another 6+ months since I am enjoying it so much. Could be limited wine for me for some time. Will keep you posted. I am still training for the Lance Armstrong Foundation Ride For The Roses in October, just at a slightly slower pace. More on that soon as well.

In the meantime enjoy a good glass of vino for me (especially the red kind). And thank you all for your thoughts, prayers and support! I am blessed to have you all in my life. You are keeping me going, even those of you who I have not seen in a very long time.

Have a great weekend!

Jim
