All this week, KMOX Health Editor Fred Bodimer is putting the spotlight on Pedal the Cause, the local cycling cancer fundraiser coming up in October. What’s unique about Pedal the Cause is that all the money raised goes toward cancer research at Siteman Cancer Center and St. Louis Children’s Hospital.
On Monday Fred spoke with Bill Koman (President of the Koman Group here) and his desire to give back after the excellent care he received at the Siteman Cancer Center.
Tuesday it was a conversation with a remarkable woman who is going to take part in the ride.
Wednesday a local pancreatic cancer specialist talked with Fred.
Thursday, Fred spoke with a doctor whose research into brain tumors in young people was funded by Pedal The Cause.
On Friday, Fred featured an amazing 8th grader, Claire, who has bravely battled cancer.
