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.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. It truly is a privilege to work every day at the cutting edge of cancer research. In our lab, we are testing how genes, mutations, and pathways coordinate to turn normal stem cells in your bone marrow into cancer-forming stem cells. The long-term goals of our study are to prospectively identify individuals in the population who are more at-risk for developing blood cancers, and developing new methods through which we can inhibit or eliminate cancer-forming stem cells in the bone marrow before they have a chance to evolve into leukemia. This work has been supported by the Siteman Cancer Center, and I am riding to help raise money for other projects driven by other investigators who share my vision of 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. Any size donation is appreciated!
