WHY I RIDE

Dear Friends and Family,

On Sunday, September 29 I will be participating in Pedal the Cause for the 9th year. Pedal the Cause is a recognized and important annual St. Louis event funding research projects at Siteman Cancer Center. To date, PTC has raised over $24.3 million for the cause. This research has opened doors to new treatments, cures, and innovative ideas that continue to reverse the progress of cancer.

This year is particularly poignant to me because I ride in honor of my brother Greg. As many of you know, Greg was diagnosed with cancer in January. I still remember receiving the phone call from my brother's partner, Marco, telling me my younger brother had been diagnosed. Too many of us are recipients of that news, for ourselves or people we love. I don't know that anything quite like that phone call has ever struck me the same way. I know for the many friends and family members the responses were just the same

Greg continues his treatments and has been able to enjoy getting back to the things he was doing long before his diagnosis. He will continue his regimen with Siteman under the great tutelage of Dr. Benjamin Tan and the staff. I used to ride to support the friends and family of my team and the Pedal community. Now I ride for my remarkable brother - a true gentleman among men.

Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride and continuing the fight to cure cancer.

Always,

Ronna Pohlman
