Please join us for the Bedford PMC Kids Ride, and meet our pedal partner, Stella Downey, and her family, including twin brother Thomas.

Stella was diagnosed with neuroblastoma in January and underwent intense treatment at Dana-Farber. Thankfully, today Stella is cancer free and will only return to the clinic for scans and checkups.

Stella and her family (including twin brother Thomas) will be at the ride Saturday and looking forward to meeting PMC kids riders and their families.
