I am riding In Honor of My dad, James Leahy.


My life, like so many, has been touched by cancer. I lost my father, James Leahy, when I was 15 years old to melanoma cancer -- It is in his memory that I ride. I also lost my father-in-law to brain cancer in 1993. In 2017, it became even more personal when I was diagnosed with Stage 0 breast cancer in July. I had surgery in mid August and radiation treatment followed that. Today, I feel great and feel very blessed that my cancer was found so early!

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise as much as possible and will spin for 2 hours for cancer research on my cancer curing bike. It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. 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.
