Like many of the people I have ridden for this year, I have never met Vicki. At least I don’t think so. Vicki and I graduated from the same high school but we were 5 or 6 years apart. I learned about her fight from my child hood best friend, Kelly, and a Facebook post he did requesting prayers for Vicki. At the time she was at a cancer center in Chicago and very scared. Stage 4 stomach cancer will do that to ANYONE! I did say a prayer for her, and her husband and her kids and her grand kids. I thought about her and her battle everyday I biked with this flag. I feel guilty taking it off my bike. It seems like I should ride for the rest of the year with this flag. I won’t because I want Vicki to know a fellow Panther who she probably never met prayed and road for her this August. Fight Like Hell, Vicki!
