BUFFALO, NY - Annalynn Surace hopes to ride 30-miles next Saturday in the Ride for Roswell. That distance pales in comparison to the distance she's traveled to get to this point.
In October of 2008, the Lockport native was just 22-years old. She says she felt extremely tired and had a bad sore throat. She went to her doctor, thinking she had mono.
Her doctor told her otherwise.
Annalynn was diagnosed with leukemia. She was immediately admitted to Roswell Park for treatment. She responded well initially, but after 11-months, relapsed. She was fortunate enough to be matched with an anonymous donor and underwent a full bone marrow transplant.
Today, after a long and difficult recovery she is in full remission. Next Saturday, she will ride in the Ride for Roswell for the second time. She leads a team of 45-riders hoping to raise $10,000.
