I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer for the first year!

On September 7, 2017, at the young age of 64, my father passed away from stage IV lung cancer. When he was diagnosed in May 2017, it had moved to his liver. Although his battle was short, it was a strong one. I remember taking bike rides with my dad around our neighborhood. He still had his bike from college and rode it proudly. He would think I was crazy for riding 20 miles for cancer research, but he would have been there along the way and at the finish line. My first Pedal the Cause ride will be weeks after the one year anniversary of his passing. It will be an emotional ride and if I can help someone else from losing their dad to cancer, I'm in!

Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride. 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
