Lonely Bikers Campaign
The fathers met in New York while their children were undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma cancer, which is one of the most aggressive and difficult to treat of the childhood cancers. A treatment exists, but the money to pay for it does not.
To raise money and awareness, the men decided to bike across the country on Highway 50. This morning, the men took a break at the columns on the University of Missouri-Columbia campus.
Mike Love says his daughter is undergoing more tests today. He looks at pictures of her to keep himself biking.
"That small room around a small table with the doctor on the other side telling me that my daughter has something that could kill her, that's a bad thing, and we need someone out there to do a good thing for us," says Love.
The Loneliest Road Campaign needs to raise $3 million dollars to make the new treatment available. So far, they only have about $200 thousand dollars.
