Why we ride!  The reason we ride … to bring awareness to ovarian cancer.  Tyler’s mother, Nancy, passed away in April of 2020 after a six year battle with stage four Ovarian Cancer. Tyler has made it his mission to see that others don’t suffer like she did. Ovarian cancer is deadly and many women don’t know they have it until it’s advanced and difficult to treat. Tyler’s mother wasn’t any different. She had no idea until her stomach became bloated and she gained about 15 pounds in a very short period. After watching his mother’s battle with ovarian cancer, Tyler wanted to make a difference and bring awareness to this cause so that others will not lose their mothers, wives, sisters or daughters.

About the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance: The mission of the Colorado Ovarian Cancer Alliance (COCA) is to provide support to those affected by ovarian cancer, and to promote awareness and early detection of ovarian cancer through advocacy and education. There is NO TEST for ovarian cancer, so symptom recognition and risk factor knowledge is key to an early diagnosis.
