Why I Participate:

I've committed to raise money for cancer research in honor of my hero; my dad, John. Unfortunately, his long, courageous battle with cancer ended on October 19, 2017. My heart is broken, but I'm even more determined to keep fighting this horrible disease that has taken so many other dads, moms, husbands, wives, daughters, sons, brothers, sisters, and dear friends from those who love them.

My dad fought cancer for nearly 6 years and benefited from clinical trials and drugs still under research. I'm grateful that he had the opportunity to travel from his home in Missouri to San Diego to be treated by Dr. Ezra Cohen, who works with a team at Moore's Cancer Center on potentially groundbreaking treatments in head and neck cancer. He is not only one of the best in his field, he is an incredibly compassionate and caring man who made my dad feel like he was his only patient. I know we both wish that there was more that could have been done for him. A cure could be just around the corner...

Moore's is one of the San Diego institutes that will directly benefit from your donations, along with the Salk Institute, Sanford Burnham Prebys, and Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego. Pedal the Cause is committed to a world without cancer. Please help me in this journey by making a donation, and give with confidence knowing that all proceeds go directly to accelerating cancer research at these institutes. Every amount helps! Thank you so much!
