Ed Walsh was a Hodgkins lymphoma survivor who rode in the PMC for 16 years and raised more than $100,000 for Dana-Farber.  Last May, he began to have heart trouble as a result of the radiation that was part of his cancer treatment in 1995.  He had by-pass surgery, and still managed to ride a moderate route of the PMC last August. “I spent most of the ride trying to rein him in, and keep him on a slower pace,” says Ed’s wife, Mary Walsh of Hamilton, Mass. “The PMC was such a big part of his life.”
