I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. A cancer diagnosis is life changing.The diagnosis impacts not only the patient but the entire network of friends and family. A caring treatment is a mix of prayers and medical procedures. I'm riding because we are living with cancer. My wife and I are living with ovarian cancer. My sister-in-law, Sally, succumbed to brain cancer. I also have some close friends struggling with prostate cancer and other types of cancer. We are grateful for those who dedicate their lives to cancer research and cancer treatment as well as those who offer their prayers and support.

Pedal the Cause is more than a cycling event. It's more than a one day event. It is a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the life changing diagnosis of cancer and the courage to end cancer. It's my way to support the work of cancer research and to support my wife, her sister and others who have or who will have cancer. And cycling is something I can do.

It takes world-class research and great faith to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. Thank you for reading and for your support.
