JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Dear Friends and Family -
Year Seven of participating in Cycle for Survival!! (Year Three of riding Extreme!)
Why do I ride?
In October 1997 I lost my 50 year old dad to brain cancer.. a rare cancer now and even more rare at that time. I remember feeling helpless and lonely and I could only imagine what he was going through. There was so little I could do to help. All I could do was be there with him and pray and hold his hand.
Fast forward twenty years and there is SO much I can do now. It's too late for my dad, but I can hlep others since him who are battling rare cancers... cancers like Ovarian, Pancreatic, Leukemia & Lymphoma, and all Pediatric cancers. I ride to honor my dad's memory. I ride to honor the memory of others who also lost their fight. I ride to show support and encouragement to my friends and family who are currently fighting for their lives. I ride to celebrate life.
Over the course of the last 6 years, with your help I have personally raised almost $20,000 - 100% of which has gone directly to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I am grateful and humbled by the incredible support from YOU in helping me be able to finally Do Something!
Every little bit helps. Thank you in advance for being a part of this journey.
Here’s how your gift will make an impact:
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.
100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Cycle for Survival is the movement to beat rare cancers. 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.
Thank you for your support!
