I hate cancer. Cancer is a taker. It takes away family, friends, and co-workers. It tries to take away hope and dignity. I lost my father (the greatest man I have ever known), one of my best friends, and spouses of close friends all within the last few years. And though greatly saddened by these losses, I was inspired by the courage and grace demonstrated by all of them through their battle against this disease. I am inspired by the courage and determination of my sister-in-law Stacey and co-worker Kristen who fight the disease today. And all of this has made me realize that I can sit idly and watch it continue to try to take, or I could do something to help.

Each year, the company I work for (Maritz) puts together a team to raise money in the Pedal the Cause event to fight cancer. And this year I have decided to join them (in transparency, I will be doing the spinning event as opposed to the course as its less likely for me to crash on a bike that isn't moving) in the fight against 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.
