Good greetings, one & all!
Thank you for visiting my personal fundraising page for the 2019 St. Jude RIDE event. Though I am still somewhat of a novice cyclist, I am intimately familiar with the workings of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and their incredible life-saving work.
Many of you are perhaps already aware, but for those who are not, I am now a 22 year survivor of acute lymphoblastic leukemia thanks to both God's grace and that of the living saints of St. Jude Hospital in Memphis. From 1994-1997, I fought for my life as countless children from all over the world do each day at St. Jude.
I am alive today because gifts from generous supporters just like YOU helped in providing my medical treatments, innovative research, and supportive methods throughout my 2 and a half year fight.
Join me in supporting St. Jude as they continue to fulfill the blessed vision of their founder, Danny Thomas, who said what I am sure all of us can agree upon, namely, that "No child should die in the dawn of life."
Your generous contributions will serve as motivation for me as I prepare to bike some 30+ miles (the equivalent of running a 10K) on the day of the St. Jude RIDE in October.
Please, be as generous as possible. And, thank YOU, for your support.
Very gratefully yours,

How your donation helps:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
