Why I ride: I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer. My story? My mom died of cancer when I was five. I ride to honor her memory. Her death changed my life in many ways. While horrible, it made all the challenges of my life, that were yet to come, seem not so bad. It gave me a much closer relationship with my grandmothers and aunts who tried to fill the void she left. It instilled a sense of urgency in me. Life is short, make every day count, it whispers in my ear everyday. To my friends who support me I issue a challenge, Make me Donate my Money! I will match dollar for dollar any amounts pledged up to $2,500. 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.
