Cancer has touched so many of our lives in the same way it has touched Katrina Bilella, a graduate student from Florida State University. 

In 2002, she lost her grandfather after a two-year battle with esophageal cancer, and now she’s watching her aunt fight breast cancer. Inspired by the war her loved ones have waged against the disease, Bilella has enlisted as a soldier, taking on a 4,000-mile bike journey from Baltimore to San Francisco with 25 other bicyclists to raise funds to fight the disease that has affected her family so deeply.
