When Nancy Cangany first heard of 24 Foundation coming to Indianapolis in 2012, she knew she had to be a part of it. Nancy has been cycling for a number of years, both for fun and for charity events, including for the LIVESTRONG Foundation. In 2009, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and following her treatment she wanted to get back into riding.
“The 2012 Indy Booty was the first time for me to ride 100 miles since being diagnosed with cancer,” Nancy said. “It felt like quite an accomplishment”.
The event, taking place only a few miles from her house, was a great way for Nancy to get back into cycling, as well as a way to support something so personal to her.
This year marks Nancy’s third year riding in 24 Foundation and although she may be somewhat limited by lymphedema she’s been battling she says that she will be out there nonetheless.
“I’m sure there will be more fun costumes to come, as well,” Nancy said, referring to the pirate booty gear she wore during last year’s event.
