Biking for cancer awareness

Mike Cohen, a San Diego resident originally from Levittown, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2004. Now, to celebrate his 6th year in remission, he bicycled over 3,100 miles from San Diego to New York, a trip that he started on Apr 1, to raise awareness for the disease and to demonstrate that one can recover and live a full, active life.
