Bicycling can be a battle, but it's the sort that we enjoy. We do it by choice. Put your bike down and imagine battling something not by choice. In the end, we will all face it. Whether it be your health, wellness, or that of those dear to you.
Jason Bauer, brother of Todd Bauer/ TMBimages and uncle of TwinSix employee and rider Josh Bauer, has had a tough ordeal since his colorectal cancer diagnosis in May of 2014. His doctors thought the cancer was completely removed in Oct 2014, but it reoccurred in Aug 2015. He hasn't caught a break through 16 ROUNDS OF CHEMOTHERAPY, 45 RADIATION TREATMENTS, 7 SURGERIES, AND A PERMANENT COLOSTOMY.
Unfortunately, the last surgery recently in Feb 2016 did not provide the news the Bauer Family was hoping for. The tumor in Jason's pelvis is too invasive to be completely removed. The Bauer's have been informed that patients with this type of cancer have a life expectancy of 2-3 years.
Jason is not just a 43 year old guy with cancer. He's and avid recreational cyclist, skateboarder, and bass player in the band Antiverse. He and his wife Amanda love to travel and spend time with family and friends. He has met each challenge the last two years with grit and fearless determination.
This is an opportunity you get to race/ride your bike and raise awareness (whether for yourself or others) about cancer and use your influence to inspire on levels you may never even recognize. Cancer sucks. Do something.
