Team leader Dr. Todd
Tillmanns says, “I am riding for all my past, current and future patients. Through
my work I intimately experience the scourge of cancer. I have recognized daily
through my patients how cancer will never win, as they choose life. Cancer has
a unique way of revealing the glories of life, God, friends and family. I am
fortunate to fight alongside my patients as they teach me the most important
lessons of life through their fight against cancer.”
