WHY I RIDE

This is the 9th year that I am supporting Pedal the Cause for cancer research.
We live with memories of so many people in my family and in my wife Kathleen's (Perry) family that have lost their lives to cancer.

I am helping to rasie funds for our families and our friends that have battled or are battling cancer.
Here is a part of our story:
Our daughter, Perry had cancer in her stomach and had to have a gastrectomy in May 2015, as did our second daughter, Audrey in 2014, as did Kathleen in 2005, as did her late brother, Frank, in 2006 and her brother, Matt, February 2015. The purpose of the surgery is an attempt to prevent their gene mutation from attacking certain organs.
We are funding the research that could cure them as well as for the research that could stop the gene mutations that lead to cancer. This is what my family lives with.

Pedal the Cause is September 29th and 30th in St. Louis. More than three thousand cyclists will gather to ride this weekend. We share a single goal: to find a cure for cancer.
Although we will not be able to ride this year because of a family event out of town, there is no less need to support PTC.
100% of all donations we raise stay in St. Louis and go directly to the Siteman Cancer Center or to the St. Louis Children's Hospital.

It makes me proud to know that my employer, Edward Jones, is the lead supporter for Pedal the Cause.
We would appreciate any support you could give.
