I am riding In Honor of Jude Bozada.


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.

I have decided to ride this year in honor of my son, Jude Bozada, who who received treatment for hepatoblastoma, a rare form of pediatric liver cancer. Thanks to the incredible care at St. Louis Children?s Hospital, he is now leading a life cancer free! Research is what guided his treatments and provided the best course to get rid of the cancer. Research is what will find cures and improve care for cancer.

No cancer journey is easy. From the moment of diagnosis comes fear, pain, and constant anxiety of the road ahead. The roughly 20 mile course that I will bike is nothing compared to the path that Jude and so many people with cancer go through. Countless medical appointments, hospital stays, surgeries, tests and treatments are what patients with cancer must endure for weeks, months or years to fight their cancer diagnosis. Supporting cancer research helps to make this road lead to the best outcome, which is a life without 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.
