I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer this year, 2018. I never thought I would hear the words, You have breast cancer. I cried the day I got the call and never looked back. As my husband said, We got this! I met some of the strongest women thru this process. The radiation machine was not working one morning and the waiting room was full of ladies. The nurse came in, machine was fixed! We all started cheering and clapping. You would never have thought that a room full of ladies would cheer to have radiation.

My sister, who fought her battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma was my inspiration to get thru this. Her fight was hard compared to mine. She is a walking miracle. And Jean a lady that followed me in radiation treatments and could not wait to get the 7:30 slot. Stage 4 breast cancer. Every time I would come around the corner she was all smiles sitting in the waiting room.

I ride for those that cannot ride.
I ride to help find a cure for cancer!
I ride for those that have won their battle, those that are in the battle, and those that are not even aware of the battle that may come.

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.
