JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Dear Family & Friends,
I thought long & hard about whether or not to do Cycle for Survival again this year and whether to reach out to friends & family to donate to my ride.
After Mom passed away in July after her 4½ year battle with lung cancer, I really did not want to think about cancer ever again. But, I decided to ride again & this year is my 7th year doing Cycle for Survival.
I'm riding not only in loving memory of my mom, dad and mother-in-law Joan, whose lives were all cut short by cancer, but also to help in a small way so other families don't have to lose the people they love most to cancer.
Cycle For Survival donates 100% of all funds raised by riders to research to develop new and better treatment for cancer patients. Mom benefitted from some of those treatments, and it made the world of difference. Both my dad and Rob's mom passed away from rare cancers, and we only wish they had more treatment options and more time.
Join me in this fight by making a donation. Any amount is more than wonderful & greatly appreciated. It's something we can all do to make a difference for those battling cancer.
Here’s how your gift will make an impact:
100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative research and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering. This work has the power to revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated worldwide.
6 Months for Fast Impact
Your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. There’s no time to waste: with your help, new discoveries will be made each year.
50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, rare cancers make up approximately half of patients fighting cancer. Rare cancers—such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, pancreatic, and pediatric cancers—are diseases we all know. These patients often face little to no treatment options because rare cancer research is underfunded.
Thank you for your support!
