I am riding In Memory of My Mom.

I am riding In Honor of My Mother-in-law Barb.


I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the seventh-annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. I am riding for my Mom who lost her battle with cancer way too early in both of our lives, my Mother-In-Law Barb and Sister-in-Law Karen who are survivors. These three ladies are my heroes, they did not let cancer stop them. I am also riding for a dear friend who recently lost her battle with cancer way to early in her life and a strong young lady name Elizabeth who is currently fighting. Elizabeth is 14 years old and such a strong, amazing young lady that is inspiration to me. I want to do my part by riding the Big Hitter course which is 50 miles of hills to raise funds to help research a cure. 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.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have committed to Yellow Jersey status by raising $2,500 for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause. Unlike years past, there will be no start/finish line, no banners and no crowds. However, there will I still have an abundance of hope,love, passion and unwavering commitment to raise funds. I still plan to ride 50 miles on in September and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure. We need to fund grant research projects and it can be done by donating to my ride. Together we will provide the researches the funding they need to kick this awful disease.

We all know that Cancer Sucks and I can't do this without your generous support!
Hugs and with Gratitude
