Dear Friends,

Every year I hear of someone else in my circle who has just been informed that they need to get on the journey to fight cancer or hear of another friend who is asking for my prayers for family members that are on the same journey. While there have been times these past years that I got to share the joy of hearing the words remission.., there have been tears when the news was not good. And in those times I think of my Mom. Twenty six years ago she lost her battle to cancer. If she were around today, she would have had a much better chance of remission, or even survival, because science and research has come a long way.

This is why I ride for Pedal The Cause. 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.

Every dollar we raise and donate to cancer research means some little girl stands a chance to spend her formative years with her mom, it means a parent somewhere gets to see his/her children grow and make him/her proud, it means an athlete gets to run again, a student gets to graduate, a child gets to be a child. It means your dollar makes a difference.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride. Your donation will NOT be used for overhead costs. 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.

Every dollar counts and no donation is too small. And some day soon, the IN HONOR list will be longer than the IN MEMORY OF list.

Thanks in advance for your generosity!
