I am riding In Memory of Cynthia Joy Carroll.


I am proud to join Pedal the Cause for my 4th year in the fight against cancer and my first year as a team captain! Cancer has deeply affected my life and my family. I have lost a great grandmother, great aunt, grandfather, and mother to breast cancer, prostate cancer, and ovarian cancer because the BRCA genes that run in our family. Many of these relatives I never had the opportunity to meet because of cancer. Seeing my mother endure multiple chemo treatments for 5 years and pass away when I was 15 was truly heartbreaking. I long for a day without cancer by funding research projects to defeat this terrible disease. I am excited to use my love of biking to ride in honor of those I have lost and fund research for a cure. Please help me in this mission by donating to my ride or team Joy Riders for research to defeat cancer so other families will not have to endure the loss of a loved one. Give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research locally at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.
