I am joining the fight against cancer by participating in the sixth annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

Cancer affects so many people so please help me in my journey to find a cure and raise awareness. I would love to reach my goal this year so please help! Every amount matters and gets us closer to finding a cure once and for all!

My Daugher summed it up perfectly - this is what she has on her page

Cancer (noun)- any evil condition or thing that spreads destructively. This is one of the definitions that is in the dictionary; cancer is literally defined as evil and destructive. Some people could define it as fear, lost love ones, no true cure, one of the most horrible things that could happen to you or someone close to you. However, if we could change the definition from that to hope, love, cure, faith, why would we not? Why would we not try to find a cure and raise awareness, money, and hope for a thing that affects mothers, daughters, fathers, siblings, friends, and almost everyone? In the U.S. alone nearly 13 million people are affected every year and this is not even counting the friends and families whose lives are turned upside down. This is why I ride for Pedal the Cause. This special day when so many people from around St. Louis and the country come together as a community to show support and to make a difference. No words can describe the feeling of hope and love that surrounds you on this day. People are laughing, smiling, challenging themselves for a cause that is so close to so many peoples hearts.
Please help me in this journey to find a cure by donating to my ride. I have
I plan to ride 25 miles on September 26th and I hope you will join me in this grass-roots effort to advance research and find a cure.
