One year ago, on May 13, 2019, I was diagnosed with stage III rectal cancer at 31. I have no family history. I do not check the box on a single risk factor. Hearing the news was completely and utterly shocking. 2019 was undoubtedly filled with some of my most challenging moments, but, to date, I am 6 months post-chemotherapy and feeling great. I owe this to my extraordinary oncology team, under the direction of Dr. Benjamin Tan, at Siteman.

PTC 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 live in a world without cancer. How do we get there? Through world-class research. Please 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.

Please consider helping me in this journey by donating to my fundraising efforts. 100% of what I raise -- literally every single penny -- will fund innovative pediatric and adult cancer research. Together, we can make an impact.
