I am riding In Memory of Darlene Hulsey, Rockne DeClue and Dave Hopper.


To my family and friends:

I started riding in 2016 for Dave Hopper, my friend and co-worker for nearly 10 years. Dave had prostate cancer. He died fighting on March 15th of 2019. He did everything humanly possible to find a cure. Dave was genuine. He was cool, positive, fun and supportive. He was always there to give me love and advice. I think of him frequently and miss him terribly. It is Still so weird that he is gone.

I ride for my MOM, Darlene Hulsey. We found out she had stage two breast cancer early 2017. She had a radical mastectomy in April 2017. We thought she had been cancer free for about two years. On May 21st 2019 (one day after her 61st birthday) we found out the breast cancer had metastasized into her brain and other parts of her body. She tried 10 rounds of radiation and on June 17th 2019, just 23 short days later, cancer took my mom. She died just the way she lived, strong and independent. My mom was a saint in my eyes. She took care of everyone without a single thought of herself or her finances. She loved unconditionally and sacrificed everything. She was the most loved women in our family. A true angel. There are no words for how much I miss her.

I support Pedal the Cause for many other friends and family who are survivors or who have lost their fight. I help to raise funds to find a cure for cancer for the future us all, because who knows! I am deeply saddened that Dave and Darlene do not get to see the day when we find the cure.

Please help by donating to Pedal the Cause.
What is awesome about Pedal, is that 100% of your donations will go directly to cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

Thank you!

With Love,
