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. This is the fifth year I am participating in Pedal the Cause. Each year I have more people affected by cancer to add to my list, and this year is no exception.

Like many of you, I have lost family members and friends to cancer, and know countless others who have battled this disease. Years ago when my mother and brother were diagnosed with cancer, there were fewer treatment options available, and a diagnosis of cancer was more of a death sentence. My mother lived only 18 months after her diagnosis of lung cancer, and my brother passed away within a year of being diagnosed with colon cancer. But things have changed much in the medical world since then, and there is more hope for cancer patients because of research and new treatment options.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. 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. Overhead costs for the ride are covered by the riders' registration fees. My goal is to raise $750 to help in the fight against cancer. Won't you step up and help?
