I am riding In Honor of Bob Patterson.


My father is Bobby Patterson. He has been battling Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood cancer, since 2017. He was diagnosed two weeks after his retirement date. Right now Dad is winning his battle, and we have every hope that he will continue to win the battle indefinitely. My mom, Nancy Patterson, was an Oncology nurse for most of her career. As a child, I went with her to the visitation for more than one of her patients. Fortunately, the outlook for many cancer patients is much better than it was thirty years ago. My Dad is a living example of that. But this disease has touched just about everyone we know, in one form or the other. As we stand on the shoulders of so many people before us, we have to do more than just enjoy the view. We have to keep fighting.

My Dad is an inspiration to all of us who are lucky enough to know him. Please help support this important work.

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.

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.
