Why We ride: We are joining the fight against cancer by participating in the seventh-annual Pedal the Cause bike challenge. 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.

This year we ride for multiple reasons.

We ride for our team member, John Christian Sr, who passed on August 5th, 2016. John had battled cancer on and off for over 24 years and beat prostate, colon, melanoma, and bladder cancers while living a faith-based life filled with family, friends, and fun. The Hammer was the original inspiration on why Team Keeley was formed and rode in their first PTC. Thanks, Hammer, for all of the love you shared with us and the world!

We ride for Issa Alovor who is continuing his battle against Pilocystic Astrocytoma grade I. This tumor was found on his bran stemin 2009. After many ups and downs over the past 6 + years, his condition is now stable and he has moved to 6 month follow up visits. He is now a A student in high school who loves all things science and is an excellent artist. Keep it up, Big Man!!

We ride for Bryor Lacey who was diagnosed with Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in early 2016. He is a spunky almost 4 year old boy who loves all things trucks, animals, and Cardinals baseball. He has been on maintenance treatments since 2016 and in March 2017 returned from a trip to the Cardinals Spring Training in Florida which was sponsored by the Make A Wish foundation. He loved every minute of it as did his parents. Keep trucking, Bryor!

We ride for every person that has been and will be diagnosed with cancer.

We ride for those who have fought the valiant fight with cancer and moved on.

We ride because cancer still exists. We will continue to ride until cancer is dead and we live in A WORLD WITHOUT CANCER.

Sincerely,
Team Keeley
