Cancer Miracle Tour of SC

Update: We did it! We raised more than $5,000 for the National Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

I’m celebrating life and raising money for cancer research. In the fall of 2015, the T-cell Non-Hodgkin lymphoma in my body was advancing so rapidly, I couldn’t walk. I was hospitalized for five weeks, and very close to death. I knew — and my doctors knew — I needed a miracle.  (You can read blogposts at the bottom.)

With the prayers and support of my family and friends at NewSpring Church, and the world-class treatment I received at MUSC in Charleston, God showed me incredible grace and displayed his supernatural power to heal.

On the two-year anniversary of my successful stem cell transplant, I’m attempting a two-week, 930-mile road biking Tour of South Carolina between June 27 and July 10.  You can follow my progress with the hashtag #CancerMiracleTourSC on Instagram (Instragram.com/nickcharalambous) and Facebook  (facebook.com/nickcharalambous.)

JOIN ME to celebrate God’s love, offer hope to cancer survivors, and support cancer research through the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
