I am riding In Honor of The cancer journey..


This year's ride is dedicated to all those who supported me on quite a journey this year.

In January, I underwent surgery to treat cancer in my throat and neck. The surgery was followed by chemo and several weeks of daily radiation. I'm happy to report I am cancer free and my prognosis is wonderful. I am feeling great, I am back to cycling, waterskiing, hot rodding and doing all the things I love to do.

So, I'm riding Pedal the Cause in gratitude for the incredible doctors, researchers and staff at Siteman;
And for my loving daughters, family and wiener dog who helped me through a dark winter;
And for my wonderful friends and co-workers who brought meals and prayers;
And mostly I'm riding for my fantastic wife/caregiver/soul mate, who will ride along with me as she has tirelessly for the last 27 years.

Our hope is that investment in new discoveries will mean everyone who receives this diagnosis will be cured and ride on---John
