A few months ago, Mona Patton of Equality said that she had an idea to bicycle 60 miles on her 60th birthday. However, a few days before her birthday, an idea came to her from Matthew 20:28, “… the Son of Man, Jesus, did not come to be served, but to serve.” With those words in mind, Mona decided to turn her passion of bicycling into a fundraiser for Rachel DeVous Page of Ridgway.
Rachel Page is a wife, and mother to three little boys, a daughter, a sister and friend to many, who has been fighting a very hard battle with Neuroendocrine Carcinoma Cancer since 2011. She has ignited hope in her family, friends and all of her community by continuing to war against the many brutal attacks on her body. Through Rachel, families have united, students in school have banned together, friends and community have grown closer, all as Rachel’s Warriors for the common cause of her health restoration. Because of her strong faith and trust in God, she is constantly encouraging all to believe, pray, and not give up hope, even during her many times of disappointments.
Very early on Monday, October 9, with commitment and determination, Mona Patton set her route through Saline County and rode those 60 miles for her young friend. A financial donation of any amount would be much appreciated to help lessen the burden of bills and expenses, and the stress of the almost weekly trips that have been made throughout most of these last six years to doctor appointments and hospitals for tests, or to treatment centers.
An account is open at any Legence Bank branch for Rachel and her family. Mona Patton hopes and prays that her dream of Riding for Rachel and her family will be a fruitful one, with your help.
