Cancer survivor in 150-mile bike ride Scrapbook

Colin Taber, who was diagnosed with stage III colon cancer in March 2010, is now preparing for a two-day, 150-mile bike ride to raise money for cancer research. Taber, who lives on the Upper West Side, will be participating in the Cancer Research Institute Ride to Conquer Cancer on June 6-7. By the time Taber’s cancer was diagnosed, it had spread to his lymphatic system and required six months of chemotherapy and surgery to remove part of his intestines. A lifelong cyclist, Taber rides an average of 75 miles each weekend and looks forward to challenging himself to riding 150 miles in two-days at the 2015 ride. He hopes to raise over $2,500.
