WHY WE RIDE

This year, St. Louis Children's Hospital rides in honor of 10-year-old Jackson, who is receiving treatment for T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).

After a routine treatment for strep throat left his swollen lymph nodes unchanged, his pediatrician referred Jackson (known as Jax) and his family to St. Louis Children's for further oncology testing. At the end of May 2019, a biopsy confirmed he had T-cell ALL.

Jax has been a trooper through everything his diagnosis and treatment required -- inserting his port for treatment, the occasional 101 (or higher) degree fevers that required an 8-10 day hospital stay and losing his hair, growing it back and losing it again. Continuing with chemotherapy treatments, Jax focuses on the positives of his treatment plan -- getting out of the house during the current shelter-in-place restrictions.

We really have been fortunate through everything, says Jax's mom, Amy. His doctors and nurses and all the staff at St. Louis Children's have been absolutely phenomenal, and we are blessed to be so close to a great hospital.

Jax says it's an honor to bring awareness to how great St. Louis Children's Hospital is, and provide funding for the caring doctors, nurses and staff as well as patients. Please join us in supporting Jax and his family through your ride and your support.
