WHY I RIDE

Twelve years a survivor. Eleven years a participant in PTC. Pedal the Cause has the mission to provide funding for cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital through their annual cycling challenge in hopes that the research funded by their event will ultimately lead to a cure for cancer.

On July 5, 2011 I received a tonsil cancer diagnosis and my whole world turned upside down. Drs. Haughey, Thorstad, and Adkins were my treatment team leaders. Their knowledge and commitment were amazing and I am sure they saved my life. Because of that, I want to do whatever I can to give back. Cancer is just a horrible, horrible disease. I am one of the fortunate ones, because I survived my surgery and treatments. Many people don't survive. That is just crazy that this disease is affecting so many people. One hundred per cent of the donations remain here in St. Louis. Please consider donating to my cause.
