Emilia, Henry, John and I are proud to once again participate in Pedal the Cause because their mission is unique and worthy of your attention.
In early June 2018 I lost a friend and co-worker to breast cancer. Holly fought for two and a half years: radiation, double mastectomy, FORTY rounds of chemo and more. There has to be a better way. And Pedal the Cause researchers are searching for that better way.

In addition to Holly, I also ride for your friends and family: Jim, Lindsay, Kathleen, Milo, Jack Eaton, Sr. Carol, Sr. Janet, Kim, Sydni, Chris, Ava...and many others. I'm also riding for a co-workers child, Gabriella who is our honorary Express Scripts team member and is in remission after treatment from St. Louis Children's Hospital!

Your donation and 100% of all funds raised will stay in St. Louis to fund research at the Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital. I've learned that cancer research is typically funded at the federal level only for projects that are already proven concepts. What Pedal the Cause does is fund NEW ideas that otherwise would not be able to apply for federal funding. Pedal the Cause has funded 101 innovative cancer research projects to date: 73 adult projects and 28 pediatric projects.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer and better treatment options. Please help me in this journey by donating to our 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.
Thank you for your consideration!
Elizabeth, John, Emilia and Henry
