Dear Family and Friends,

As you may recall, Pedal the Cause is a tremendous partner of St. Louis Children's Hospital having raised over $5M in support of pediatric cancer research over the past eight years. This year, I once again join Pedal's effort as a rider and I invite you to consider joining our SLCH team by riding alongside us as a rider or donor.

I know first-hand what it's like to live at a hospital; what it's like to call a hospital home. I also know how critical it is have a world-class care hematology/oncology team surrounding one's family with unlimited love and support as they navigate a child's illness while trying to make life as normal as possible.

In my case, it was life with my daughter Paige - a life filled with good books, great music, smiles, long cuddles and holding hands. It was also a life filled with blood pokes, chemotherapy, surgeries and a stem cell transplant.

So, on Sunday, September 29, I will ride in honor of Paige's 14th anniversary, in thanks for the blessing of Graham and Meredith's good health, for Ziyra and all the children we serve at Children's and in the hope that with more investment and research all children can live happy and healthy lives.

With gratitude,
