I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause 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 end cancer.

My family has benefited directly from the lifesaving research that this fundraiser supports. In 2020, my daughter Gabriella underwent treatment for Leukemia at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Traditional methods of chemotherapy were unsuccessful and we were unable to find a bone marrow match. We are very grateful that a new, innovative treatment (CAR T Cell therapy) was available for her. And we are ecstatic to share that it worked and she is in remission! The research behind the CAR-T Cell therapy that saved her life was funded in part by PTC approximately 8 years ago. Proof that the money raised through this event really does make a difference.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and 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.

Gabriella and I will be riding virtually in the event (depending on the weather, we may be riding at our local YMCA). I hope you will consider donating to Pedal the Cause to continue the research and fight to save more lives from cancer.
