2500 miles on a bicycle in 35 days! From the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific Ocean! Saving lives one mile at a time, raising money for breast cancer! Who would be crazy enough to embark on this journey? Dusty Showers, perhaps the most recognizable, strong man in a fancy pink bra,who has an intense passion for battling the cancer that has invaded his family’s life, that’s who!
Dusty Showers, The 2nd Baseman, has been a breast cancer advocate since 2004. His first experience with the disease was when his daughters’ grandmother was diagnosed. Dusty and his family began participating in various breast cancer fund raising events, and his participation at these events is when Dusty discovered his passion. In 2009, breast cancer hit close to home again when the mother of his daughters’ was diagnosed. Coerced into wearing a pink bra, Dusty saw that the ridiculousness of him in the pink bra brought so much joy and gratitude to those participating in these events, as well as discovering a way to use the ridiculousness of his appearance to help raise money and awareness for breast cancer.
Dusty has held the hand of many of the women he has met through their treatments, diagnosis,and devastation. He has lost many friends through the years to this terrible disease, but celebrates their life with the “Fight like a Girl” attitude. Dusty is a breast cancer advocate!
