Why I ride: I had a great time riding last year so I am joining the fight against cancer again by participating in the annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.
In 2012 I was diagnosed with uterine cancer. I was very fortunate that it was successfully removed and I did not have to undergo any further treatment. I am riding to raise money to fund research to find new treatments, and to find better ways to prevent cancer.
Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $250 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.
I plan to ride 25 miles September 28 and I hope you will join me in supporting the fight against cancer.
