WHY I RIDE

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. I know first hand how important it is to raise money for this great cause. When I was two years old I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I was fortunate to be treated here at St.Louis Children's Hospital for three years. I'm doing well !!! I am healthy, strong, and 17 years old! 30-40 years ago kids with leukemia didn't survive. Because of Children's hospital and the research that happened before I got there, I am living proof.

I am riding for those who have survived like me, those fighting their battle with cancer, and those who have lost the fight. I would like to honor 3 special people that were close to me for this ride, who lost their battle with cancer....my wonderful grandparents Katie and Dan Slade, and dear friend John Christian.

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.
