Ceri Williams

Let me introduce you to Ceri Williams, the Team Survivor Honored Hero for 2020. Ceri is in remission from High-Risk Myelodysplastic Syndrome and has battled though a bone marrow transplant and multiple rounds of chemotherapy. Ceri’s fight includes much support from her sister and Team Survivor teammate, Mair Churchill, as well as The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, who was always in the background providing resources and training. You will all hear more of Ceri’s story at the Honored Hero Party on March 21st. In the meantime, we will be riding in honor of Ceri and her battle with blood cancer for the 2020 season. Ceri, thanks for sharing and welcome to Team Survivor!
