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. 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.

I have had several friends and family members who have been affected and died of different types of cancer: colon, ovarian, pancreatic, and know several with breast cancer at present. I have worked at Cardinal Glennon hospital with multiple children who have been affected by cancer, some are cured now, others have lost the fight .

I ride for my friends who are survivors: Sandy Spencer, Carol Joselyn, Sue Owens, Sarah Legett. I ride to remember all those who have died and for all those who fight this disease. I ride for my parents, Chip and Irma Barni, and for Sandy, my life partner who died in January of 2016 of PSP, a prime of life neurodegenerative neuromuscular disease that is as bad as cancer: and for my good friends Terri LeTrello and Judy Stinson, Ophelia Garmon-Brown and my cousin Susan Barni and my Aunt Lorena, all who passed away way too young....and for Jeanne Allard....all those who are family to me..... let's all pedal the cause with or without a bike!!
