WHY I RIDE

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.

Cancer has and always will hold a special place in my heart. During nursing school a patient once shared that she thought I was her angel sent down to her as she fought through her last days of her cancer battle. From that moment on, I knew where I needed to be. I have since then devoted my nursing career to oncology patients of all likes and most recently specialized in Lymphoma. These are some of the best people you could ever meet and are the reason I am so very compassionate about my job.

I've watched one of my best friends conquer Hodgkins Lymphoma, supported by husband's grandma as she battles through Squamous Cell Carcinoma, and prayed endlessly as my cousin fought until the very last day with his Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma- leaving behind two of the most amazing kids and the strongest wife. I've held hands of newly diagnosed patients, relapsed patients, and those who are celebrating the wins. There is nothing more that I want than to see a world where patients can be cured by the treatments we have to offer.

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.
