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.

Personally, I've seen the lasting effects cancer can have on families and communities as a whole. While I was still becoming me, my aunt began and unfortunately lost her battle to cancer. She was a bright, energetic woman who led by example and passion as a strong mother, school principal, and role model to everyone who knew her. I'm happy to highlight her life while raising money for this cancer center. Since then, I've seen additional effects on too many family members, friends, and coworkers who have spent countless hours in and out of hospital beds and doctors visits. We may not be able to find the cure all but we can damn well try to fight as much as possible to care for those we love.

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.
