WHY I RIDE

My grandmother was diagnosed with a glioblastoma located in the left side of her brain when I was 10. The doctor said she would live for six months, she lived for nine. I?m still angry sometimes when I think about it. My grandmother was a deeply faithful woman, full of wisdom and love. And someone my sister and I dearly loved to be with and learn from. She She had so much more life left to live, I had so much more life I wanted to live with her.

As I have gotten older I have come to realize that my experience is not so different than many people. Nearly every person has lost someone far too soon to cancer or known someone who has. Imagine a world in which we did not all share this commonality? Imagine if no little kids lost their grandma before it was time; our fathers, mothers, friends, children, did not have to suffer from any type of cancers?

With your help, I believe we can end cancer. On September 24, I will be riding in Pedal the Cause. I started riding in and raising money for Pedal the Cause in 2018, because I believe we can one day see an end to cancer. 100% of all donations go to cancer research at Siteman and Siteman kids in St. Louis. My goal this year is to raise $500. Please help me get there by donating $10, $25, $50, or what you can, and together we can end cancer.

Thank you for your generous support! Together, we will create a world without cancer!
