WHY I RIDE

Almost four years ago, my brother Tom called to tell me that a melanoma he previously had removed had metastasized into cancer in other parts of his body including his brain, spleen, lung and spine. When Tom called me about his cancer, he was the picture of health and the last person I thought would be making that call. I am riding for Tom, but also for the next person who makes the difficult call of a cancer diagnosis to me, or to you, or to anyone they love.

I thought I had lost my younger brother. But through the grace of God, and by medical advances that have been accomplished through research done by doctors right here in St. Louis, an immunotherapy treatment halted the spread of his cancer and put him into remission. Just a few months he called to let me know his doctor him he is cancer free! YAHOO!!.

More research is needed to make a world without cancer and the research requires funding. All the money we raise will go to Pedal the Cause to fund cancer research in St Louis.

Please consider helping me raise $2,500 on my ride to cure cancer.

Thank you, Jim
