This year's Pedal The Cause event is Sunday, September 27th ~ my fourth annual 10-mile bike ride for team "Powered By Hope" to help raise funds for cancer research. Here's my story and the most recent update...

As you know, on November 15, 2016 I was diagnosed with a malignant stage 4 Pancreatic Neuroendocrine Carcinoma with metastasis to the liver (NETs). My most recent treatments include bi-weekly IV chemo at Siteman Cancer Center, and 2 Y90 liver-directed treatments. While these treatments are busy fighting my tumors, my next CT scan is scheduled for July 1st to see the outcome of the past few months.

For over 3 years I have been battling this cancer, and I'm not about to stop. YOU and Pedal The Cause have been a huge reason of why I AM living proof of what donations can do to support critical cancer research, but it all begins with funding. In these days of COVID19, it's difficult to even send out a fundraising email, but I would be SO GRATEFUL if you could help me in my journey by donating what you can. It would mean the world to me.

Also, if you didn't see this last fall, I was chosen to be a 2019 Featured Rider for Pedal The Cause on KMOV Channel 4 ~ check out the 2-minute video below!!

I would be honored to have your support.
