Woman with Terminal Cancer Realizes Harley-Davidson Dream

A woman with terminal cancer has fulfilled her dream of riding a Harley-Davidson motorbike.

Ellie Lawton, 59, from Orpington, embarked on a memorable journey as a passenger from Sevenoaks in Kent to the Route 1066 Cafe in Robertsbridge, East Sussex, on Sunday.

Diagnosed with only three to six months to live, Ms. Lawton joined about 200 other motorcyclists for the ride.

"I'm not going to live that long, but it was something I will remember every day," she said.

The event was organized by Rolling Riders, a community charity riding group.

'Spectacular' Organiser Mark Hopgood stated, "We try to make people's dreams and wishes come true."

Ms. Lawton added, "All I asked for was a ride on a Harley... I thought, 'they can't all be here for me.' It was just spectacular."

She reminisced about having a motorbike when she was younger but noted she had never ridden anything as big as a Harley-Davidson.

Originally from Yorkshire, Ms. Lawton, now living in Orpington, encouraged other people with terminal cancer to "not give up hope."
