(KSL News) A group of fathers is riding their bikes from Sacramento to Washington, D.C., to help save their children from a cancer called neuroblastoma.

Michael Love says, "It just shatters you. I mean, she was a happy, healthy 18-month-old girl running around. She has two older brothers. You would have never known this little girl was sick."

Michael Love is one of five fathers whose children have this rare form of eye cancer. It's the same cancer former Utah Jazz player Derrick Fisher's daughter was diagnosed with.

These fathers are biking 3,700 miles to raise money for an experimental treatment called immunotherapy.

If they can raise $2 million to $3 million, their kids and others could get treatment in about six months.
