Rina Drake, 43, of Nashua, is a cervical cancer survivor who says she had it "easy" because the cancer was found early and she required no further treatment after having a hysterectomy. For the past seven years, she has been riding in the PMC with the Nashua Rides for Hope team. The team captain, Andy Elioupoulos, is a cancer survivor and a close friend of the Drake family. "After Andy recovered from cancer, we signed up to ride because we wanted to do something to raise money for cancer research," she says.
