I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

This cause has a special meaning to me and my family as my mom, my sister-in-law and also myself have all fought and won the fight against cancer. I was diagnosed with melanoma cancer when I was 8 months pregnant with my son Logan. I am thankful to the team of doctors at the Siteman Cancer Center where I was treated. The team at Siteman took care of me and most importantly gave me the gift of bringing a healthy baby boy into the world. My ride is in honor of my two sons so that they can have the opportunity to grow up in a cancer free world. I'm riding to celebrate the victories and also to help raise funds for cancer research so that many other families can experience the same joy that my family has been blessed to receive the day cancer free finally became a reality.

I ride simply because I can and for those that can't.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride.
