Why I ride: In late March, 2017, I was diagnosed with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. At the age of 50 (and completely healthy otherwise), this diagnosis caught me completely by surprise, and turned my life upside down in an instant. I started treatment in Sydney, Australia where I was living at the time and had three rounds of chemo there. In July, 2017 I moved back to the St. Louis area with my wife and three children (ages 18, 17, & 10) and continued my treatment at the Siteman Cancer Center. I am very impressed with the treatment approach and the doctors, nurses and staff at Siteman. This is my first year participating in this ride. I plan on beating the odds and look forward to participating again in 2018.

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.

It takes world-class research 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.
