On June 2, 2021, on of my best friends succumbed to her battle of fighting breast cancer. She had won the battle over 13 years ago, but in March of 2021, the doctors told her that that it came back as metastatic cancer and had spread to her bones and lungs. She felt that Ibranz would kick it's ass, but sadly cancer is an asshole and sweet Diane Trygstad Wilcox passed away. Diane was kind, brave, intelligent and one of the nicest humans on earth.

I also lost another friend who had the similar story, My good friend and mentor Mary Vencill succumbed to her battle of fighting breast cancer on July 30, 2017. Mary was a training ride leader for AIDS Lifecycle and taught everyone to 'Take care of Each Other'.

My best friend Lynette whom I've known for many years was also told she had breast cancer a few months ago. She is going to kick it's ass, this I know!

I'm doing this ride in honor of Mary and Diane and so many others who either lost their lives to or have been affected by cancer

There are more than 250,000 survivors who were diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 living in the U.S. today. They are navigating an already permanently altered life after cancer now compounded by COVID-19. 

I have made the exciting decision to participate in YSC Virtual Tour de Pink this year to raise funds to support them through the Young Survival Coalition (YSC).

I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal. Any amount helps!
YSC is the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks. Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit

You can view YSC’s audited financials and annual reports online here:

As I get moving for the survivors and thrivers, I plan to update this page frequently along with my social media accounts so that all of my supporters can see my progress towards my fundraising and personal fitness goals.

Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity. Love Tanner
