Andrew Gordon Patient

Andrew was diagnosed with multiple myeloma in 2013. Andrew went through five cycles of VRD, a stem cell transplant and two years of maintenance with Revlimid. He has been off of all treatment since March of 2016 and remains in complete remission. Andrew has been an avid cyclist for many years and credits his devotion to exercise for his ability to withstand treatment with limited side effects. Since retiring from full-time employment in 2015, Andrew has had more time to ride his bike, having cycled for over 10,000 miles in five of the last seven years despite living in Pennsylvania (where it gets very cold). Andrew rode with Team R2V in 2019 on the ride through Vermont, finishing in Quebec. That ride was difficult, but rewarding, allowing for the development of long-lasting friendships with his teammates. Andrew is looking forward to riding in Maine this summer with the R2V team.
