Why We Ride: Seth Brodkin

We’re all affected by cancer. Nearly everyone has some connection to the disease, whether it’s a family member, friend, co-worker or acquaintance who has heard the words “You have cancer.” Seth Brodkin is no different. He lost a grandmother and an uncle to cancer. His nephew has battled cancer since he was a baby. He’s also in the unique position to see just how powerful and important cancer research is since his father was an oncologist for over 30 years.

“While I didn’t understand it at the time, I look back and realize what his dedication to fighting cancer meant to the community,” said Brodkin. “People would hug and talk to him almost everywhere we went. He was a calming yet truthful voice to friends and family who were suffering from the disease. He dealt with patients dying every day and always wanted to go back. He is truly my hero.”

Inspired by his dad, Brodkin has registered for the Victory Ride to Cure Cancer presented by Braswell Family Farms through his employer, TrialCard. Despite not having been on a bike in many, many years, Brodkin is fired up to ride (plus happy to show off his well-versed sense of humor) and told us, “I have not ridden a bike in 20 years, but I’m assuming it’s like riding a bike.”

Whether you’re an avid cyclist or someone, like Brodkin, who hasn’t been on a bike for as long as they can remember, the Victory Ride has a spot for you. Together, we will achieve Victory Over Cancer®. And what would that look like to Brodkin?

“When we can eliminate a tumor like we do a headache, with a solution that is affordable and accessible to everyone. Future generations will only know how terrible this disease used to be,” said Brodkin.
