WHY I RIDE

I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in my 10th 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.

Money donated directly affects my family as my daughter was diagnosed with leukemia in May of 2012 at the age of 22 months old and treated at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Her treatment is now over but she will be monitored for years to come. Current data shows 80% of kids who can survive their cancer end up w/lifelong issues. 80%!! Not only do we need to find a cure, we need to find a way to help these kids deal with possible lifelong issues handed to them solely due to cancer treatments.

In 2019, my dad was a recipient of a bone marrow transplant at Siteman's. Even though the treatment didn't work for him, the team at Siteman's gave our family hope and an extra year to make memories.


Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. 100% of your donation will go to directly to LOCAL CANCER RESEARCH. Let me repeat....100%.
