WHY I RIDE

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.

As some of you are aware, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer four years ago. Initially, I was under a wait and see protocol. That scenario changed dramatically in late April, of 2018. I was contacted by my Urologist who informed me that my Prostate Cancer had advanced to the stage that immediate action was necessary. After exhaustive research about my options, radiation vs. surgery, I chose to have a Radical Prostatectomy procedure on 7/12/18. Much to my relief, my surgeon, Dr. Lou Anglo, phoned me two days later to inform me that the cancer was contained to the Prostate Gland and my margins were clear!!! That being said, I was off my bike for three months and missed my first Pedal ride last September. ): Having ridden in four prior Bike MS rides, I am Shifting Gears to the Pedal ride. Not only had I been dealt a dangerous hand, I have two women near and dear to my heart that are breast cancer survivors!!!

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.
