Albany- An Albany Doctor is pedaling his way toward more money for cancer research.

Cancer Specialist Jose Tongol is riding in the Bristol-Myers Squibb Tour of Hope with Tour de France winner Lance Armstrong.

Dr. Tongol will ride the last day of the race. That's 100 kilometers through Washington D.C. on October 18th. The Tour is a week long ride across America to raise awareness of cancer research.

"There's a lot of misconceptions about clinical trials," Tongol said. "In fact, all the cures in cancer we're receiving now is because of the research that we've been through."

Dr. Tongol had to raise at least $500 dollars to participate. He's raised about $5,000. The Tour of Hope begins this Saturday.
