Cancer survivor bikes for a cause

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A California cancer survivor is cycling for a cause.

For the next 62 days Andrew Sninsky, a 63-year-old cancer survivor, will peddle across the country to raise awareness of Multiple Myeloma. It's a rare form of cancer that does not have a cure. The 1,200 mile ride to the Atlantic coast will be his third cross country trek.

"I am used to riding bicycles, but I never thought I'd be able to ride again after my diagnosis. And now I'm healthy enough to be an inspiration, to some degree, of other people who may have my disease," said Sninsky.
