More than 100 motorcycles recently passed by Charlotte Lalas' home after she wrapped up her first year of treatment for B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

Raleigh Chrome Angelz Riding Club presented Charlotte and her family with a check for more than $5,000.

"It made a big dent," Jessica Lalas, Charlotte's mother said. "It'll pay off half of what we have outstanding right now."

"We're here to encourage women to get out and ride," said Denise Southerland of the Chrome Angelz. "You can do it. We've got members that are just learning, and we're here to support 'em. It's fun, we love it. It's our therapy."

Charlotte will be in chemo through October of next year.
