  • In honor of Jon Lord who died of pancreatic cancer
    $60.00

    Fatty,
    yesterday, Jon Lord, the great keyboarder of a band called Deep Purple (might have heard of them)
    died after fighting pancreatic cancer for almost a year.
    This donation is in honor of him ("Deep Purple in Rock" was my first LP I bought with my own money), 
    without you running any contest whatsoever.
    Thanks for all you do.

    This donation and entry in the contest is for my brother, 
    Pete Jensen, a great brother and cyclist. I'm hoping his name
    can be put on this entry for a couple chances to win? (I also donated
    for my own chance to win a minute ago 'cause I can't decide who I 
    would want a new bike for more - me or him.) Our Mom battled 
    breast cancer a few years ago, and is doing great today thanks
    to wonderful cancer research that informs excellent medical care.

    Mmmm....Ibisy goodness.
    Thanks for inspiring me to write Eldon. I stumbled onto the Fatcyclist when I googled Lycra and cycling (or something to that effect) and was amused and entertained enough that I went back and read the entire series.
    I've thus far remained a solo-rider, not riding for any causes or doing much of anything particularly magnanimous. It gives me pleasure to donate to your cause on behalf of the numerous cancer survivors in my own family.
    Cheers,
    Andrew

    Howdy - just a chick who loves to ride road and mountain and would eat 100 boiled eggs to get a chance to ride out there with you, much less to win a bike. Heck, I'd do it naked in public for that chance. But, since that sounds icky, I'll just scrape up $10. Good luck to me! Keep up the good work, Fatty.

    Hi Fatty. Your writing makes my day better and your attitude makes ME better. I'm glad to donate for you. Re: contests, if I were the lucky duck this time around I would want to give the bike to my husband please, because he is a good man and doesn't get a lot of breaks. Without complaint over 18 months he has rehabbed himself from a debilitating accident and is back on the bike, fit and strong. Also, he knows a thing or two about business operations and philanthropy and you would be much better off making that connection and chatting with him rather than me. He is also a lot funnier than me. But I would very much like to tag along and pet the Mojo SL for just a few seconds. It makes my heart jump into my throat. Love, Ann Pai

    Elden, opgeven is geen optie. That's Dutch for: Quitting is not an option. That's the dutch motto for fundraising to raise money for the battle against cancer. I weat the yellow live-strong whristbqnd for years now and it gives me so much strength when things are though. You do a great job, together with live strong and your blog. That's why I donate. And by the way, I love to travel all the way from the Netherlands to Utah to go biking with you.

    Fatty,
    I have been following your blog for years, and I look forward to it daily. You and your readers are inspiring, and I am grateful for your honesty and humor in handling life and cycling. While I am an active participant in Team in Training (is there such a thing as competition in charitable giving and fighting cancer?), I think it may be best to share the wealth; I'm sorry I can't give more.
    Thank you for all that you do for children, other fatties like us, and cycling.

    My mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer early this year. She's undergoing treatment right now. Her mother died of ovarian cancer two years earlier. It just seems to be everywhere.
    I've been following you blog for some time time. I experienced personal tragedy (death of my newborn son) in 2007, so I followed your blog closely and felt your experience with Susan deeply.
    I'm excited to join in with your efforts. Keep up the great work!

    I wish you the upmost luck in your fundraising for LiveStrong. I lost my mother to cancer 15 years ago when I was 9 years old. She battled breast cancer for 9 years before it took her life in 1997. Cancer has single-handedly put some rough patches in my path so I know how much of a bitch it can be! So to sum it all up, I cannot express my respect for your fundraising skills to fight the suckest (don't think that's a word) thing in this universe...Cancer! Also, I really, really, really wish I could donate $500 million dollars to your page but being a recent college grad...well..I'm broke, so I'll donate what I can. Ride Safe and Good Luck!!!

    Great work Elden. I found your blog awhile back and read it, being a fat
    cyclist myself who also happens to enjoy good writing, which you supply in spades. I also appreciate your work and message through Livestrong, having lost too many loved ones, and young ones at that, due to cancer. I'd donate to your team anyway, but the Utah trip and bike certainly are awesome motivators. I love that area of the country and ski there at least once per year. All that said, in the unlikely event I win the random drawing, I refuse to allow you to buy my plane ticket or pay for my lodging. I will, however, take the Silk SL, some fine brats, and a (heafty) sampling of whatever seasonal delights the Wasatch Brewing Company is offering. Best regards, Jeff B., Atlanta, GA
