Say hello to Vanessa Cianci:
In the Beads of Courage program, there is a bead for The Wingman or a person who flies beside you and helps to support you so you're not alone on your journey. Vanessa is a wingman....er....wingwoman to Kiersten and I because she helped to get us set up on our bikes so we could start this journey together.
When I was strong enough to ride again, I went to Landis Cyclery, our favorite bike shop and Vanessa helped me pick the perfect bike. It was love at first ride.
So thank you Vanessa for being there for us! You are the best.
