WHY WE RIDE

Please join our St. Louis Children's Hospital team led by our captains: President Trish Lollo, Pediatrician in Chief Dr. Gary Silverman and Division Chief, Pediatrics Hematology Oncology, Dr. Jorge Di Paola. We hope you will join us as a rider, stationary cyclist or virtual rider!

This year, St. Louis Children's Hospital rides in honor of 2-year-old Eleanor, who is receiving treatment for acute myeloid leukemia, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Born with Down Syndrome and a blood disorder known as transient myleoproliferative disorder (TMD), doctors have monitored her closely since birth because kids with TMD have a 10-20% chance of developing leukemia. After a series of routine tests came back abnormal, Eleanor was diagnosed with leukemia at 15 months old.

Her treatment plan includes six rounds of inpatient chemotherapy. Currently in her fourth round, she's doing great! She misses her two older siblings and the comforts of home, but everyone at Children's - doctors, nurses, therapists and support staff - has helped make Eleanor and her family feel at home during her extended stays.

Eleanor and her parents are excited to be representing St. Louis Children's at Pedal the Cause this year and hope that you will join her team in the fight against cancer!
