MY LIFE | Today, I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Dr. Kreis as well as listen to her speak to one of my classes at Brock University. She was very well spoken and a true inspiration! “Dr. Kreis was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army’s Medical Service Corps while completing her bachelor’s degree. She completed her master’s degree while serving on active duty in the Army. After having ridden a bicycle cross-country while pregnant, Dr. Kreis was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. After having two surgeries while pregnant to remove the cancer, her daughter, Viva (for “live long”), was born healthy in January 2005. Before Viva was born, she had “ridden” more than 4,000 miles with Mom! Because of her connection with cancer, Dr. Kreis was one of 25 cyclists selected to ride in the 2005 Tour of Hope – a cross-country bike ride with Lance Armstrong designed to bring attention to the need for clinical trials in cancer research.” – Biography.
