Our Team Pedals for Matthew through Ride for A Child:

Matthew, Age 10

Matthew was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July of 2017. He underwent a nine hour surgery to have it removed and developed Posterior Fossa Syndrome. He is currently in therapy three days a week for speech, physical, and occupational therapy to gain back control of his motor skills. Matthew has had 30 treatments of radiation and has completed 9 treatments of chemo. With what Matthew is going through, he and his family have had to definitely create a new normal, but seeing him getting stronger each day, they know he has a big, bright future ahead of him. Matthew is a huge fan of all the Marvel and DC Heroes. Matthew and his family are excited to be a part of Pedal the Cause not only because it raises money for the cause, but it lets families know they are not alone.

Team Alicia's Army is riding in honor of Matthew!

More About Why We Ride:

Each and everyone of us has at least one special person in our life who has battled or is battling cancer. It really does not matter which type of cancer it is. What matters is that we want to do something to make the difference now and for the future of our families and friends. We know that it takes world-class research to create a world without cancer. And by participating in Pedal the Cause, we know that 100% of our donations will go directly to accelerating cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children's Hospital. This team has been formed to build a legacy for Erika & Haley Wrob who lost their sweet mama Alicia to cancer at the tender age of 13. Those of us who love these special girls support them as we honor our dear mother, friend, daughter, sister, daughter-in-law ~ Alicia Jones Wrob. Come join us and make THE DIFFERENCE for your special friend, sister, mom, brother, neighbor, co-worker or whomever you desire to keep present in your heart!
