American River Bike Ride Benefits Ovarian Cancer Research at UC Davis
By Rachel Smith
Bobbi Little’s mission is clear: “to improve the quality of life for people while they’re on the planet.” And trust us, she practices what she preaches. She is the epitome of health, with her youthful skin, toned everything, and a perky personality (not to mention her two adorable, furry sidekicks: Bandit and Bella). This woman once did a 24-hour spinning session (solo) for charity. Hashtag holy shit.
You’ve probably walked by Roberta’s Skin Care Clinic on 21 and J Streets, but you wouldn’t believe all the amazing work that Bobbi Little is commissioning behind those doors. In addition to the organic skin care clinic she manages, the space is home to Bobbi’s House of Balance (which specializes in rehabilitating cancer patients), and it’s also a gathering place for quarterly educational seminars on women’s health.
While overall health is Bobbi’s goal, her main focus is to help find a cure for Ovarian cancer, a mission she actively pursues in memory of her good friend and clinic namesake, Roberta J. Schneider, who passed away in 2011 after her four-and-a-half year battle with the disease. Ovarian cancer accounts for about 3% of cancers among women, but it causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.
On August 3, Bobbi is holding the 2nd Annual The Good, The Bad and The Balanced bike ride which benefits Ovarian Cancer Research for the UC Davis Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology Division, the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Roberta J. Schneider Trust for Women’s Health Care. All levels are welcome to be part of this fun and worthy cause. See below for more info:
