I am proud to join Pedal the Cause in the fight against cancer. Pedal the Cause is more than the region's top cycling event. It's a way of life, a celebration, and a movement fueled by the courage to end cancer.

It takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by donating to my ride, and give with confidence knowing that 100% of your donation will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

My world has been touched by cancer, but I'm not alone. Many of my friends and family have also experienced what it's like to have a spouse, parent, or friend taken too early because of cancer. I dedicate my 50-mile bike ride this year to my brother Matt who was recently diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer. Matt is currently undergoing treatment and he is handling it well. You've got this Matty, stay strong, we've got you on our backs and will see you through this.

Join me in celebrating brother Matt and all the other people going through treatment for cancer, hoping for a cure in the very near future. You can help by donating to my ride in Pedal the Cause 2019. Your donation is not only tax deductible, but the money actually does help find a cure. Thank you in advance for your open heart and generosity. We're pedaling our butt's off to find a cure!!!
