I am riding In Memory of Don Newell.

I am riding In Honor of Tammy Linn.


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.

I ride in memory of our dear friend Karen Newell who lost her husband Don Newell to cancer. I ride for my friend Debbie Steiger who lost her sweet mother Diane Diamond. I also ride for my beautiful wife Tammy Linn. She is living proof that funds raised for PTC do make a difference. Tammy was diagnosed over 4 years ago with NETs cancer. It is a very rare cancer with not many treatment options. Tammy has tried any treatment that they asked her to and been such a WARRIOR over the last 4 years. November 15th marks 5 years since she was diagnosed. Currently Tam is on immunotherapy that is used for lung cancer. We are hopeful that she will get some relief from her symptoms and have more time with everyone. I dream of the day that my wife may be living without cancer!!! She means everything to me, our family and our friends. I ride to show her that I would do anything to help her, support her and fight for a cure for cancer.

Please support us and our Powered by Hope Family! It means so much to us. Thanks, Shirley
