WHY WE RIDE

This year, St. Louis Children's Hospital rides in honor of 7-year-old Ziyra who is receiving treatment for an ependymoma, a type of brain tumor.

From December to February 2018, five days a week, Ziyra had proton beam radiation therapy at the S. Lee Kling Proton Therapy Center, part of Siteman Kids at St. Louis Children?s Hospital. It is the only proton therapy center located in Missouri and the surrounding region.

To have the proton therapy center at St. Louis Children's Hospital was very helpful and convenient, says Ziyra's mom, Allysia. We thought about going to St. Jude but that would mean we had to travel. I'm very thankful the treatment was available here.

Once proton therapy was completed, Ziyra began intensive chemotherapy. It has been rough on her and definitely slowed her down but she is determined to keep pushing, Allysia says. She has lost her hair but her attitude is it's just hair. I'm proud of her and how strong she is.

Please join us in supporting Ziyra and her family through your ride and your support.
