WHY I RIDE

Dear Friends and Family,

The weekend of September 25-26 is scheduled for the annual Pedal the Cause. I will proudly be riding for the 10th year. Pedal the Cause is a challenging St. Louis event - its primary objective is to raise cancer research monies for innovative "seed" projects often ignored at the federal grant level. To date, PTC has raised over $32 million for projects.

I ride in memory of my brother Greg and in honor of my dear friend Betsy.

My brother was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer in January 2019. The team at Siteman staunchly advocated for Greg from the early beginnings. They framed for us how his battle would proceed and he demonstrated courage throughout. After his diagnosis he learned how to live with his new chemo schedule and those bi-monthly visits to Siteman. With time he wrapped his head around the new-normal and went back to a full life. His cancer was voracious - yet until the very end his fortitude was remarkable.

Please help me to support Siteman by donating to my ride. The research will go on to support many others who find themselves in the position of learning they have cancer. It's when we look to Siteman for help finding the answers and the guidance to take us the rest of the way.

Always,

Ronna Pohlman
