Team: Team Siteman

ID: 29850

Lifetime total: $425.00

I am riding In Memory of Clare Smith.

I am riding In Honor of Patricia McPharlin.


I am, once again, joining the fight against cancer by participating in the 2020 Pedal the Cause Inspired bike challenge. Pedal the Cause mission is to provide critical funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children?s Hospital through this annual cycling challenge. It is their hope that research funded by Pedal the Cause will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to the Cause. Every little bit helps!!100% of your donation will go to directly to the Cause.

I plan to ride 20 miles on September 26th and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.

I am riding for all the people, including my friends and loved ones, who have battled cancer over the years.

Patricia McPharlin, my grandmother's sister - one of my favorite Aunties who died of ovarian cancer
Carey Grana, 40 years old, who left a loving husband and two young boys behind
Clare Smith - a wonderful young lady I was honored to know while she was a patient at SLCH
Karen Catlow who fought a couragous battle with brain cancer
Mr. Stark
Mr. Romano
My manager V.H. who just passed away on June 30, 2013, who was an awesome and dedicated lab manager, giving, understanding and terrific human being.
Sharon Malone,awesome friend and mother

Plus lots of others who are battling cancer as I ride for the right to continue to live.

Last year the money raised was awarded to researchers here at Washington University to fund their research and to utilized the Tissue Procurement Core Facility and the Biological Therapy Core Facility, where I work.

Thank you again for your generous support. Together, we will create a world without cancer.
God Bless and pedal on, my friend.
