I am riding In Honor of Avery Thornsberry.


I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer, and feel confident that the dollars raised to fund local research will save lives.

Having gotten to know a number of cancer researchers and physicians by working with them over the last four months, I have seen first hand their deep desire to treat patients and families with gentle care and work tenaciously with their research teams to advance the science that will make leaps in the fight.

The care teams at Siteman and Siteman Kids treated 6-year-old Avery, my 93-year-old grandma Eunice and many other close friends and family in between who fought and beat cancer in part because of the science and therapies gained through research there. And while I?m not the one in the lab or at the clinic advancing the cancer fight scientifically, I can play a small role in helping fund those who have the training and experience to make a significant impact.

Personally, I am excited to try a new sport! After 10 steady years as a runner, I have taken a break but am excited to venture back into individual sports!

Thank you for taking time to look at my page and contributing your encouragement and/or donation!

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.
