I AM ONE PERSON, YET I AM NOT ALONE.
You might not know who I am, but you have been in my shoes. You know my story.
My name is Jason Lowman. I am a husband, father, sailor, and a soldier in the battle against cancer.
A short time before I joined the military, a very close family friend – my pastor, lost her life to brain cancer. I knew then what I was being called to do.
I am a fighter, but I cannot do it alone.
Charleston has been my home for over 5 of my 9 years in the Navy and I love this city. I married my wife here, raised my son here and have dedicated myself to the local area cancer organizations.
Before I have to leave Charleston, I will make one last “deployment”. I am making it on behalf of your mothers and fathers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, your children, co-workers and friends.
June, 2011 marks the date of my departure from Naval Weapons Station- Charleston and my departure across the country on my bicycle.
It is a journey of more than 4,000 miles of tears and laughter, anxiety and relief, questions and knowledge.
4000 miles of hope
