Tom does it again

When cancer survivor Tom DesFosses puts his mind to something, it is a sight to behold. Today's second annual Reason to Ride attracted 185 bike riders devoted to raising money for cancer research at BIDMC. This was well over double the participation from last year.

Here are some pictures:

Tom and his doctor, neuro-oncologist Eric Wong; Dave deBronkart (aka e-Patient Dave) and his orthopaedic surgeon, Megan Anderson; a friendly server from event sponsor Fuddruckers with BIDMC staffer Allison.

Finally, here's a video of The MERJ, a wonderful musical ensemble who donated their time and kept the place hopping, even after the ride. Here they are singing the Hank Williams favorite, "Jambalaya (On the Bayou)."
