It's another year and Tom and I are BOTH planning on riding the 50 miles this year! Tom was undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for tonsil cancer last summer so he cheered from the sidelines while his best friend, Tom Cortopassi, and I rode. He finished his treatments in September and is back on the bike ready to take on the Pedal the Cause route! The fight against cancer never stops however. Tom's brother, Matt, was diagnosed with lung cancer in June and is receiving treatment. We will be riding for him this year along with all the other survivors I carry on the back of my jersey. 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.
