WHY I RIDE

UPDATED April 2020 - 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.

I ride and raise money for this cause because it has affected almost every person I know and will continue to do so until we find a cure. Many of you know that my mother, Marlo Bamberger, is battling Metastatic Breast Cancer. Just 5 minutes after I crossed the Pedal the Cause finish line back in September of 2017, I received a phone call informing me that her Cancer was back and it had spread to her bones. She has fought courageously ever since. In 2018 she began a trial drug that, most likely, would not have been available without generous donations from the general public. During this scary situation with COVID19, she is being very cautious and continues to receive regular chemo treatments to shrink or stop new tumors from growing. We received some great news a few weeks ago that one of her tumors they are watching carefully has shrunk since her last scan!! Please continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers!

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.
