WHY I RIDE

When my dad was first diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer I was not sure he was going to live long enough to be with me on my eleventh birthday. The weekly treatments and care he continues to receive from every doctor, nurse, staff member and volunteer at Siteman has allowed him to live past his original diagnosis. My family and I get to experience the benefits of every single dollar that is raised in support of this unparalleled facility. No other care that he has received has come close to what the Siteman facility has continued to provide. Each additional day he gets to spend with our family and friends is truly a gift. I ride so that every cancer patient and their cancer family may get the opportunity to spend any additional birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, holidays, weddings and the gift of ordinary days with their loved one, with hopes for eventual advancements and cures.

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.
