To Cyril, Women Motorcyclist.Com and My Motorcycle Family. Thank you!

Brenda Fox sent me this letter.

‘The support I have received means more to me that words could ever express. I never thought I would be dealing with Breast Cancer. The morning I discovered I needed immediate health attention,  I was scared for my life and I never imagined I would have to deal with Breast Cancer issues on my own. My body went into what the doctors called a crisis state. They said dealing with breast cancer and no financial support was too much.  My body started shutting down. I then ended up having to deal with unnecessary medical complications.
The panic of dealing with my health was terrifying, There are no words that come close to describing the devastation I felt. Then word got out in the motorcycle community and that I was going thru a hard time and I was going thru it alone. I’ve been embraced by familiar faces and strangers who ride motorcycles with bigger hearts than I’ve ever known. The depth of appreciation I have to the motorcycle community is beyond words.
Thank you to Cyril, thank you to each and every one of you Thank you to for setting up the site to support me. You folks have picked me up when my life took a supercharged, fuel injected slam to the ground. I AM here because of your love and support. I AM beyond grateful. Thank you for being my family”. Brenda Fox.

Update 05/20/08: Fellow Custom Builder Roger Goldammer asked me to add the following mention: “Anyone with questions, comments or concerns should be free to call or email me directly as they may have been mislead”.

    Hey Cyril;

    Sure good of you to play the role you’ve taken on.

    It was just about a year ago that I met Brenda at the Rock Shop……….what a dream-come-true lady she is!!! I clearly recall her vivaciuosness and total commitment to her work and writings about bikes.

    I am confident that the the wind was taken out of her sails only temporarily and before long, Brenda will be back in the ‘driver’s seat’ and doing her ‘thing’ beyond anyone’s expectations.
    Both emotional and physiological challenges will be overcome, providing a stronger and wiser Brenda Fox with the talent and strength to impress us all.

    Its been a pleasure getting to know Miss Brenda Fox, Her story speaks one of courage, and strength. The kind we all need to remind ourselves we have in the mists of struggle. Its truly inspiring to watch how she is determined to love life and overcome the obstacles that once stood in her way. The only way out of them is through them. Cheers, to a sensation woman, who will continue to lead the way.. Looking beautiful and full of life! (and Having FUN while doing it, right!!??)

    Brenda, I am so glad that our lives came together over a teeny tiny doggie. Hang in there, girl, and give it your best shot. I’m there for you, as part of your extended family…

    Your adopted sister, Karen

    Keep up the good fight Brenda as you have a lot of friends around the world to see now. Your family has grown.

    You’ve learned one of the biggest lessons in life…to never give up.
    Remember this, those who give up on you don’t count.
    They are like the chaff that the wind blows away.

    Be true to yourself, be who you are.
    When you know you can count on yourself then those whom you can count on will be there for you.

    This is only temporary. You’ll be back in the saddle sooner than later! Your courage is a blessing.

    I’m sure everyone in the community that reads this but does not post wishes you ALL the best treatment and a speedy recovery. I wish you the very best.

    I know the pain of this disease and destruction. -short story- My stepmother was diagnosed in 2002/2003. After almost two years of treatment we all thought it was in remission. Several months later came back (there are several different cancers, for men that don’t know, one is bad and the other is REALLY bad… she had the less of the two the first time and the real bad one the second time, most don’t survive the second kind) in the other breast. Again almost two years over all, ended in double mastectomy and a total of four years of hell…… After many more surgery’s she now looks like a regular woman…….. In fact, this week she in on the beach somewhere down in Mexico in a bathing suit. As my step mom she is a very attractive older lady. There is life after this terrible disease and again we wish you all the strength. Please keep us posted.

    You inspire everyone you touch. Keep focusing on the positive, throw away the negitive and make room for all of the support and love that will come your way.
    My heart and my energy are with you.
    If you need anything, you know where I am.

    Hi Brenda,

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery. If you want to crash in Ojai for a while, you’ve got a place to stay. We’d love to have you. Come spend some time with Beake. He’d love it and it would do wonders for your soul. Lots of Love, Deni & Glenn

    Hey Brenda,
    I had no idea this happened to you. I will be telling Dan as soon as he calls and I know he sends his love and then some to you. I had been updating you about Dan and your friend Hope sent me to this site. Dan and I wish you the very best and if you ever come to Maine you have a place to stay either with me or maybe in Dan’s house if his father gives us permission. I’m sure he will…. I wish you a healthy and speedy recovery of your body, mind and soul…. I look forward to meeting you in person someday. I watch your video sometimes of the Love Ride 17 with you and Dan. Please take care and keep your spirits soaring high because you will make it even better than before..
    Respectfully Tina Dionne and Dan Roberts xo =]

    As one of your many fans, I look forward to your improving life. You are already reborn and on your way to a great future. Take it easy and take your time. Every morning you wake up is the beginning of the rest of your wonderful life. When you’re 100%, we’ll go riding in some fast car.



  17. 17 Jeff Baize May 23rd, 2008 at 2:58 pm

    Wow, what can I say….

    I can think of no one else I’d rather ride with than Brenda. Aside from her drop-dead beauty, she’s a real beautiful person inside, and has helped me in my endeavors to raise money for under privileged children as well as disabled veterans – young men and women returning Iraq.

    Brenda, you are in our thoughts and prayers. You are strong and one of the most fearless women I know.

    I’m sure this goes for all of us…we’re here for you. Let me know if I can do anything!

  18. 18 Lorenzo Lamas May 23rd, 2008 at 9:17 pm

    Dear Brenda, My positive thoughts and an afermation of perfect health go out to you. Every cell, every fiber of your being denies this intrusion. You are perfect as you are, healthy in every way.Keep smiling Foxy and batting those big beautiful eyes of yours! Love, Lorenzo

  19. 19 John Iman May 24th, 2008 at 9:39 pm

    My prayers are with you Brenda.

    I just realized you are the pretty Brunette girl in the Suzuki Motorcycle TV Commercials.
    Stay strong girl!

    You’re going thru alot and know you’re strong. Your a fighter.
    You have an inner strength that will pull you thru this.
    I know I will see you on TV again.
    Keep fighting!
