JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
I’m raising money for rare cancer research with Cycle for Survival. I ride in honor of my sister Sue who died after a valiant fight with brain cancer. The same kind John McCain has...and Ted Kennedy had..and my brother-in-law Dave had.
I miss my sister every day. I miss her laugh, her amazing hugs, cooking with her, watching the movie Ted. I miss the person she was before her cancer when the days weren't filled with fear about the next scan...before her last year when speaking was so difficult and her body couldn't move. People shouldn't have to go through what my sister endured.
I thank all of your for helping the fight in whatever way you can. Cycle for Survival is a special day for me to ride and remember my sister...this will be my 7th year riding...and my fourth riding "extreme" (spinning for all four hours). It is my privilege to ride for those that cannot.
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!
