Well Siteman Cancer Center has come through for me again! And more specifically, the Head's Up Team that I ride with. I had a lump in my neck during the 2018 ride and it turned out to be metastasized thyroid cancer. Our team-mate Dr. Patrick Pipkorn in Siteman's Head and Neck group became my surgeon, removing my thyroid and 13 lymph nodes on Jan 21. I received 1 radioactive iodine therapy dose in February and the follow-up scan revealed no cancer. All is well now because of the experts at Siteman Cancer Center, and the many people who were praying for me during those months. Eric and I have decided to increase our ride to the 37 miler to support Siteman's continued progess on the path to end cancer. I ride in memory of my dad, Robert Chibnall who died of lung cancer in 1982 and for Mary Ann Winterer-Wetzel, my step-dad's first wife, who died of breast cancer.

Eric and I are pleased to be riding with the HEADS UP team. Our friend, and team captain, Don Conine and his son were both treated successfully for their cancers at Siteman Cancer Center.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help further the cause 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.

Thank you for any support you may provide. God bless you!
