Why I ride: We all know someone who has been effected by cancer. Their lives and dreams shattered and life plans rearranged. Whether it is your brother, sister, mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, aunt, uncle, cousin, coworker, or friend, we all have been impacted in one way or another by the diagnosis and hearing the words, "I have cancer."

I am a proud Child Life Specialist participating in Pedal the Cause. I have watched the heartbreak on parent's faces from the moment of diagnosis to the excitement of final treatments. I am joining Pedal the Cause not only for the patients I've worked with in oncology in the past, but also for the patient's my peers work with in the present and the future. I pedal for my many family members and family friends who have faced the most difficult and darkest of days facing cancer. I pedal to celebrate the courage and bravery.

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.
