Kathy LaTour, Editor-At -Large for Cure Magazine was one of the riders on the '08 Amazon Heart Thunder Ride down the coast of California. What you may ask is Amazon Heart Thunder? I'll let Kathy describe it:
The Amazon Heart Thunder motorcycle ride in September 2008 brought together 20 breast cancer survivors, including two with metastatic disease, from eight states and the U.K. for a more than 800-mile ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco. The women, diagnosed between the ages of 29 and 53, included experienced riders as well as those who learned to ride for the event. Four participants drove two vans that hauled luggage and provided additional support, such as taking riders to eat in the evening and stopping for emergencies.
