The disease known as fibromyalgia is not a killer, but complications related to treatment of the illness took the life of 30-year-old Carrie Thomas last June.
Now, her 64-year-old father, Mike Thomas of St. Helena, is preparing to take part in a week-long, 520-mile bike ride in her honor. The ride will take him from San Francisco to Santa Monica Oct. 2 to 9. "I want to do this for Carrie," the St. Helena resident said. "Hopefully, she'll be proud of me." . . .
