WHY I RIDE

This will be my 9th Pedal the Cause participating as a volunteer or rider. The organization is impressive in that every dollar raised stays right here in St. Louis! Those dollars have helped fund world renowned research done at Siteman Cancer Center.
Every year I've committed to this cause on a personal level in that I've had a friend, colleague or family member fighting cancer. This year is no different however this year hits closer to home. My husband, Ethan, was diagnosed in February with a rare head and neck cancer known as Salivary Duct Carcinoma. He has begun chemotherapy treatment at Siteman Cancer Center. We are grateful to have the best doctors and world class research in our hometown and want to support Siteman so that this will continue to be the case well into the future. I refuse to watch my family and friends endure this disease and so I will ride my bike in an effort to make a difference in the movement towards a world without cancer. It is a tiny thing I can do that pales in comparison to those who are fighting the fight.

Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

No donation is too small. Each donation will propel me towards reaching my goal of raising $20,000. Thank you in advance for your love and support!
