Most people who read bicycle blogs already know that Elden’s (aka Fat Cyclist) wife Susan has recently taken a turn for the worse. Her cancer has spread to become inoperable brain cancer. Susan has been told that she only has months to live, and Elden and Susan have had to pass that news on to their 12 and 14 year old boys and their twin six year old girls.
Elden and his wife have health insurance, but costs obviously continue to mount for hospice care, travel for family members, and of course just the day to day expense of living. Ways you can give to Elden are numerous, including buying Fat Cyclist jerseys and other gear and donating directly via PayPal.
UltraRob (aka Rob Lucas) is also helping out by pledging all income from his site today and Tuesday toward Susan’s fund. If you’re going to buy cycling and other athletic gear anyway, go buy it through Ultra Rob’s online cycling store.
