WHY I'M INSPIRED

I am again joining the fight against cancer by participating in the tenth-annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. I am riding in memory of my father, Dr. James L. Scheetz who lost his battle with cancer on March 17th, 1982, at the age of 49.

So here we are on March 1, 2020 and it has been one hell of a ride. My next appointment at Siteman Cancer Center is March 6th and the day I find out if my body is free of cancer. Updates to follow!
UPDATE!!! March 6, 2020 My doctor, Lannis Hall came in to the operatory we were sitting in with the widest smile and she said "Fanfreakingtastic" !
What that meant was that my numbers were better than expected!!! PSA < .5, Testosterone rising, Vitamin D levels returning to normal. All very good news.
UPDATE July 28, 2020 Feeling stronger every day. Bummed that we will be on our own "Inspired" this year, but we are planning to ride the Katy Trail on our own, in honor of those fighting the good fight.

I am thankful that I am with the best team on the planet in BJC and the Siteman Cancer Center, and will continue to support them and their research as long as I am on this planet!

As you know, 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. I know that significant strides have been accomplished in medical research, leading to longer more productive lives for those unfortunate victims of cancer. Research is made significantly more successful though private sector donations, and that is why I have joined the effort!

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to PTC. I have committed to raise as much as I can for cancer research and 100% of your donation will go to directly to this cause.
