Your effort has been nothing short of inspirational. It is said in certain scriptures that "he who saves a single human life sees the face of God." You have helped so many to find themselves through your example that I can see you there near to Him free of all pain and at immense peace. Bless you Jane.
The world has lost a wonderful woman, wife and mother.Our sympathy to her family and friends, God keep you all safe we will never forget Jane and her courage and tenacity.Sincere condolences from the Martin Family from Doncaster.

I have jst read the sad news about Jane. Our thoughts are prayers are with the family at this very sad time. What a strong character what a brave person!!!
Deeply saddened to learn of the death of Jane. Although I did not personally know her, the challenges she conquested with her illness made her truely inspirational. Rest In Peace.
Hi Jane, i admire you so much and i have read your books. Being 25 with a 5 year old i can't imagine how you must have felt at such a young age finding out that you had cancer.My mum had breast cancer but the lump was removed and all was fine.i wish i could pray enough that it would help you and your family. #You are a very special person and your family are so proud of you and thats how i feel just from reading your books.You are a tower of strength in my eyes and i think that what you you do is absolutely amazing. Many people in my family have died of cancer, the youngest being 15 and the oldest 59. You are an inspiration to us all.i admire you so much.Anna casey
Hi Jane, I don't know if you will receive this messgage, but I want to let you know you have my thoughts and good wishes with you right now. I have been diagnosed with kidney cancer which has spread to both kidneys and a lung! I have just had one kidney removed and am now recovering, I have only known all of this for 2months so coming to terms with it is hard, but you are my inspiration to go on with life! I start my drug therapy next week, I'm scared but hopeful too! if I can be a strong as you then I will be a better person for it. Love to you and your family.xx
I have recently read your inspirational book as an individual with a terminal illness ( in my case renal failure) i feel the book as well as witnessing your great achievements has assisted with the process of coming to terms with my condition. Equally it has enabled me to realise that the diagnosis of a condition is not the end of the world so to speak. I amintain good health, good blood results and maintain a f/t teaching career as well as a normal life. Illness or how it impacts on us is determined by how we let it. I do believe that if i sit there and feel sorry for myself ( though we all have those days), then i could find myself in a downward spiral. With my condition i could die suddenly, (i am 41 years of age by the way) and have witnessed this in other people. You really have been an inspiration and the book allowed me to come to terms with the condition/effects on me/life. Many thanks bernie allen
Vani Foundation for breast cancer - India
Dr.J.Ratna prabhakar: To Dear Jane and Mike,Just I have gone through an Indian Local paper and came to know about jane who is a great inspiration to many Breast cancer patients including my wife Vani. In order to continue the battle and to get victory on breast cancer we have established Vani foundation for Breast Cancer. We are also planning to extend our programs in all the south Indian states in the coming year. I am an Indian Christian and a husband of a Breast cancer survivor.My wife's name is Vani aged 38 and she has been battling for two years.we both decided to educate women by detecting cancer at an early stage.With regardsDr.J.Ratna prabhakar
Amazing just proves what any one can do if you got guts and bravery. Jane has made me realise how important it is to get out there and make the most of every moment we all have. when ever im having a bad day i think of you guys and what you have achieved.none of us no what the future holds dont give up the fight.
I have just finished reading your second book " you cant take it with you", It was a fantastic read, as was the first. I am in awe of you, such a brave strong woman, I have just started to cycle again, after away from it for a few years, just to get fit. You have so much courage and a wonderful family to support you. You are always in my thoughts and now in my prayers.
You are just incredible. I cannot express how much of an inspiration you are.
I am nearly at the end of your second book. I have enjoyed reading about your bike rides and your determimation to make it to the end no matter what pain you are in You are truelly an inspiration to all.
Don't know what to say... I read about you in the paper and what you do is just so incredible and fascinating!!! Your courage, determination and will may inspire others in their Fight, God bless you!!!!!
i have read both of your books jane and they gave me so much courage you are an amazing woman you should be so proud good luck xx

With respect and admiration.
I am an elderly widower who has read incredulously about your billiant courage and determination. Words cannot express my admiration.My dear wife died of cancer. God Bless you.
what a mum
If I had even a tiny part of your courage I would be grateful. I cried when I read your book and wish life were fairer. your family must be so scared and so proud. god bless
We were sorry to hear about the lack of interest in your epic ride across the US and we are sure this is due to the media not taking up the story. This is a great mistake on their part as we have found the American public on our travels around the USA, over the last nine months to be very receptive to knowing about people who show tremendous guts and determination. They are also a generous and kind nation. Why on earth did the press think this would not generate interest. Maybe some of the press ought to comment on their reasons.

hi Jane I think you are fab you are so determind and thats deffinatly the right state of mind to be in. And I hope people will know you in the year 3000 loads of love Ella
Gunnel Lundqvist, Sweden
You are a fantastic woman.
I love your book.I am thinging of you and you are an inspiration.
You are amazing. I have just read your book and cannot believe how brave and committed you are. I just cannot imagine how you do it. My thoughts are with you.
I don't understand how you are able to do this! It's incredible. My thoughts are with you, WELL DONE!!
vera de vooght
I have just read about you in a Belgian newspaper and your courage must be a support to lots of people. Take some rest now and enjoy every day with your family. I'll be thinking of you.
Well done Jane. You are an inspiration to us all.
Jane, You've been in my thoughts often during your ride and I'm so glad you made it. I just don't know how you do it but you've inspired me to register for the charity trek for my local childrens hospice next year.
'Well done' just doesn't say enough - I think you're amazing!
i have just read your book the luxury of time .
it touched me deep , you are brave and positve beyond words . you go girl.
you have brought value to life and your strength and values are an example to us all and will echo in eternity.
mick hunter, leeds
i'm so disgusted and disappointed by the american reaction. whenever i hear your name i feel very humble. you are an inspiration.
A UK friend tipped me to Jane's story on line. I am awestruck and doing what I can to spread the word here in the US. I don't know if there's been any US media coverage because I don't watch TV news & rarely read newspapers, I do everything on line these days.
I doubt that Jane's story is being ignored by the traditional media because she's British. It's probably more that she doesn't have a Public Relations machine behind her; our media seem to need to be spoonfed most everything.
Cheers & courage to you Jane, you've touched many of us.
Jane I have never met you but you are very special to me well done you are truly remarkable.Stay safe and enjoy all the best and thank you for been you.
You are a wonderful inspiration to us all. Your courage and tenacity are amazing. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep up the good work.
I am speechless. I lost my Mother and young sister to breast cancer. You're courage and bravery is awesome. Congratulations and may God Bless you and your family. ~~Deerfield Beach, Florida~~
Good effort! Well done Jane on a fantastic achievement. What can I say? I have no words to match your courage, determination and bloody-mindedness. Be proud.
Linda in the USA
Congratulations on your triumphant trip across the United States! You have demonstrated it is possible to overcome adversity in the quest for accomplishment.
colin from belfast
just seen the news that you have comleted your ride.well done. as someone who has cancer i think you are unbelievable.fortune favours the brave.
You are such a strong lady, and such an inspiration to others. Your fundraising will touch many lives. Good luck.
Sue Pinkerton, Ashland Massachusetts
Jane, you are an absolute inspiration. I'm so sorry your epic endurance feat was totally ignored by the US media. I e-mailed all the networks, but obviously they didn't express interest. Their loss. There are thousands of us out here on the web who followed your ride day by day as Mike posted the blog. We felt for you with every push of the pedals, hurt for you with every dog and idiot-truck-driver attack, and were with you in spirit at the end of every pain-filled day. You are awesome. Thank you for what you've done - you deserve the highest honor any country can give. Go home and love your family, and know that your name will live among the heroes forever.
Brilliant. An inspiration.
Jane - Had I read this earlier, I would have been at Battery Park to greet you this morning, as I work nearby. As an exiled Scot in NYC who has lost many family members to cancer, I can only marvel at your achievements. You are truly an inspiration to us all. God bless you...
Jane, your effort over past few weeks has been immense. Your endurance is an inspiration to all.
Jane you are an amazing and brave lady. I admire your strength and hope that now you have finsihed your journey across US you will have some well earned quality time with your family. You are incredible. Peace and happiness.
WELL DONE JANE AND OF COURSE YOUR FELLOW RIDERS WE BRITS ARE VERY PROUD OF YOU. YOU HAVE SHOWN COURAGE AND STRENGH IN ALL THE CHALLENGES YOU HAVE ACHIEVED. PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE THE REASON WHY BRITAIN IS CALLED GREAT.GOD BLESS HAVE A SAFE JOURNEY HOME.
Anna Butler, England
Congratulations on completing your journey. Your achievements are staggering and I have no idea where you have found your willpower. Enjoy your well earned rest.
I thought you did amazingly so a very well done!
Congratulations to you on your immense achievement in cycling across the USA, enduring such hardship on the way. You're possessed of a spirit and character most people will never have.
I applaud you and your efforts. You have shown more braveness and courage in your journey than anyone I know. May God bless you, your family and team.
Roger Gillett. Norfolk England
Your bravery is beyond words. I have never come across such determination and selflessness

nigel north notts
Im not a religous person but god bless jane and your family
Wishing you a safe and prosperous journey. Some of us are going to try and get you some media coverage. Peace. Kitty
We're all with you in spirit, Jane, there are thousands of us cheering you on from our hearts, dig in deep, you're almost there.
Your an inspiration to all of us. My heart and soul go out to you and your husband. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am thankful for all your dedication. God Bless you. Love to you.
i'm just so overawed by your efforts, my dad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and the first time i saw him smile after his diagnosis was when i said (with reference to you) that i expected him to be cycling america this time next year!! I have for years suffered with a bad back, but you inspired me to return to my passion - horse riding. you made an old man with cancer smile, and you helped me to feel alive again, you truly are an inspirational woman, and your children have a fantastic mother who they will surely never forget......... I wish you comfort and dignity and peace for you surely deserve it.
Jane, It's hard to add to those messages that others have already written. I'd just like to mention that realistically you are actually riding a very long tandem with all us supporters on the back seat with you for every turn of the wheel.
Jane I`m the Welshman who asked you to autograph the picture of the Wales Grand Slam Winning Team in March 2005, whilst we stopped at a service station on the M6. I was wearing my Wales shirt. I have never forgotten meeting you that day. The strength and fortitude which has carried you across America is a lesson to us all, never give up. I bought your book and I was in tears. Look forward to seeing you again, Peter Morgan (Halifax)
David and Sam, Sydney
We know you'll keep going to the end Jane and complete this incredible journey. Your determination and courage is remarkable and humbling.We're with you all the way.
My thoughts & prayers are with you all & pray for your safe return home to all those who love you & those who you give so much hope & inspiration.May your Guardian Angel be with you all the way.
where ever you finish you'll always be a winner. Your inspiration will go on and on.
My five year old son says ' your really brave'
Love and prayers to you. What an inspiration you are!
May God give you the courage and strength to complete this fantastic journey.Britain is proud of you.
STEWART, JULIE AND WILLIAM IN WAKEFIELD
I have just seen the BBC news on how close you are to completeing your FANTASTIC journey. Keep going! You have inspired so many people - me included - 2 London Marathons and Lands End - John O'groats next year for The Muscular Dystrophy Campaign. When you cross the finish line there will be a massive cheer from this part of Yorkshire. Good luck!
Jane I have been making sure friends in various states of America know you are there and I asked them to cheer you on if you passed through theirs. Hopefully donations will come in from some of them and from me.
You are an inspiration to everyone.
God bless X
Thank you for doing this to raise awareness. Many of us ride with you in spirit and will pass along your message. Your courage is an inspiration.

You're amazing! I'm so disappointed reading Mike's blog about lack of US support. never mind we love you - I'm just coming to the end of your book - you're all fabulous.
Ann from Nidderdale
You're nearly there Jane. Well done, girl! and as Kate Bush and was it Peter Gabriel once sang.."Don't give up, cos you have friends" All the best.
Jane, they say 'you can take the girl out of Yorkshire, but you cant take Yorkshire out of the girl!!! You have done Yorkshire proud, we are all behind you. Good luck on your last few days.Take Care
Thank you Jane and Mike, you are stars! I can't do anything about the American Press response but speaking as a Leeds woman with terminal breast cancer I can only say what you've done for me - given me encouragement, the will to fight on and enormous respect for you and your family. Bless you, you've enriched my life. Hang in there, it's nearly done and be assured, here at home your awesome achievements are appreciated and applauded.
Helen Shenton Stoke on Trent

An awesome feat from a woman with unrivalled courage! Please know that many of us here in the US know of and appreciate your efforts. As someone who has heard the "C" word 3 times in 3 years I can truly say I support you in every sense of the word.
Blessings and peace to you, my dear.
Hi Jane - I cried today when I heard you on the radio talking about your fear of dogs. I never doubted for a single minute that you would make it but even so knowing that you are so close leaves me feeling totally humbled. You're an amazing woman - an inspiration to us all. When you get back to Leeds you and Mike will have to let me buy you dinner. Take care and God bless 'supergal' John x

I have been following your progress and I hope that you end your journey with enough strength left too get home safely and have some time with your family. I think your guts and determination are fantastic. Best wishes and good luck.
GO FOR IT GIRL. XXX
Where were the news crews when you were pedaling through my town? I could cry. I would have found a way to give you a cheer as you passed by! I wish I had seen this blog weeks ago. But, I've seen it now, and you have my admiration and prayers. You've already made a difference. Godspeed, Jane. / St Louis, Missouri

Hi Jane! don't know what your back and legs feel like but i did 92 miles last saturday, with off road tyres, a rack and heavy pack and i was washed out on the way home. I think you must be some kind of special person and an inspiration to be with and to know. Good luck with the rest of your journey, through America and life. Your a "stoater"!
Good Luck Jane - what you have achieved is fantastic. You are an inspiration to so many people. Keep burning that rubber!
Nearly there Jane, well done, your an inspiration to everyone.
