I am riding In Honor of Meg.


I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the 2021 Pedal the Cause bike challenge.

On September 26th I will be riding in memory of a family member Meg who sadly lost her courageous fight with stage 4 aggressive Melanoma on Saturday September 11, 2021. I am also riding in memory of my sisters Donna and Rose. I'm riding for all my family and friends who have felt the pain of cancer. I'm riding to raise money for cancer research so that no child will suffer, so that no one will lose a loved one to cancer, so that one day we will find a cure! We are getting there but still a long way to go.

In 1989 my beautiful sister Donna was given a few short weeks to live after her Melanoma metastasized there were few treatments available at that time. Just a few years later my beautiful sister Rose lost her 2 year battle with breast cancer. Today, there are more available treatments to kick cancer to the curb and so many people are becoming survivors! But there is still so much more research to be done, and that requires funds.

Will you join me in this cause? Say yes, and join by signing up to ride, run, walk, or by simply making a donation. 100% of your donation will go directly to the Pedal the Cause which has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through this annual cycling challenge. The goal is that the research funded through this challenge will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

In 2011 and 2012 I rode with Powered by Hope in support of my friend Teri whose compassion, dedication to others, strength, and her never ending jest for life truly inspires and continues to amaze me. This year I will again be joining team 'Powered by Hope'!

May we all be Powered by Hope on September 26th.
