JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Many of you know my sister died from an aggressive form of brain cancer...and so did my brother-in-law...and so have many more famous people like Ted Kennedy, Beau Biden, John McCain. What was common for all of these people is that treatment options are limited and often the only real hope is that surgery can buy you time (if the tumor is operable).
This will be my ninth year riding for Cycle for Survival to raise money for rare cancer research. Will you join me by making a donation? Your gift will directly help people who have few, if any, treatment options. Through Cycle for Survival, progress is accelerating. We arm scientists with the resources to explore pioneering ideas, discover new therapies, and collaborate to find the next breakthrough.
Why this matters to me:
50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
When combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer. These are cancers we know — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers — yet research is largely underfunded.
100% Goes to Lifesaving Research Led by MSK
Every dollar you give will advance innovative studies and clinical trials led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Discoveries made by MSK revolutionize how cancer is diagnosed and treated, helping patients across the country and around the world.
6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.
Thank you for your support! (This photo was from the last year my sister was able to cheer on Team Gray Matter.)
