WHY I RIDE

I'm still alive today because of the cancer research that has been done over the last 10 years. I have advanced prostate cancer that has spread to my lymph nodes and bones, and I have been told there is NO CURE for my condition, and that only 1 in 3 people with my diagnosis live longer than 5 years. I digested this diagnosis 5.5 years ago and I am still going. I ride because my hope is that fewer and fewer people, and eventually no one will have to hear the words I heard YOU HAVE CANCER AND THERE IS NO CURE FOR YOUR DISEASE. More and more people are being diagnosed with cancer each year and this is a chance to join the fight to help.

My family and I are joining the fight against cancer by participating in the 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 all types of cancer.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to raise $20,000 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go directly to this cause.

Please join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.
