WHY I RIDE

I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than a community cycling event, it's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer - ALL CANCERS for everyone. This year with social distancing and the changes within Pedal I plan to ride my bike 50 miles along with my family and a couple of friends in honor of three amazing people among many other special people that are fighting cancer and in memory of another who has lost the battle with cancer.
I am riding for Team Powered By Hope in honor of my special friend Sandee Cohen, my sister Marty and brother in-law Chuck. I am also riding in memory of my friend Jo Ann Alexander.
My friend Sandee was diagnosed with uterine cancer earlier this year. Her treatment has included surgery, chemo, radiation and lots of Prayers.
My sister Marty was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in June and she too has had many prayer warriors praying for her as well as going through chemo. She has such a positive attitude.
My brother in-law Chuck was diagnosed In November of 2017 with squamous cell skin cancer. He thought like everyone that it is a easily cured cancer. He has gone through surgeries, chemo, radiation and is currently doing a clinical study that has shown a 57% improvement this past year.
I am also riding in memory of JoAnn Alexander who lost her battle with ovarian cancer in 2017.
Four special people with four different cancers, for all that they have been through ...the chemo, the radiation, the set-backs, the clinical studies, the tough fight they are doing with dignity and grace, I am riding 50 miles in their honor....I hope to raise 500.00, but I need your help. Any amount will help.

No one wants to hear the words You Have Cancer....It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer, and Pedal the Cause is the only event that gives 100% of participant donations to Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital to advance cancer research. Together, we can create a world without cancer.
Thank you for your support.
