I am inspired and motivated by so many amazing fighters. My first inspiration comes from Tim Holten, my fiance who lost his life to non-hodkins lymphoma at the age of 24, in 2001. His life was just at the beginning and was cut short unfairly by cancer. After he died I knew I needed to do something more with my life. I left my job at Boeing and went back to school to become a nurse. I've been an oncology nurse since 2004- it is my passion and meeting and helping patients through some of the most difficult times of their life gives my life so much more meaning. I love when I hear a bell ring inside one of our Siteman Cancer Centers- signifying great news on a scan for a patient, or for some the end of their treatment. I hope and pray that during my lifetime we see many cures for many or all cancers. I am joining pedal the cause to raise money for all those fighting and all who have lost their life that their last wish was to find a cure so no one else would lose their life to the fight. Please support this great cause!!

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's largest cancer fundraiser. It's a way of life, a celebration, a family and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.

Please support my efforts by donating to my fundraiser, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will fund lifesaving cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children's Hospital.
