JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.

I’m riding and raising money for rare cancer research. Will you help me make a difference by donating?

As many of your know, my sister Susan fought a hard battle with brain cancer.  She was diagnosed in January 2011 and ended her battle on March 2016.  There were so few options - but at least she had some. 

We travelled to seek care and selected MSKCC because of their comprehensive care and capabilities.  I am certainly glad we did, although I would have liked a different outcome.

There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss my sister.  And having just gone to the funeral for a friend that died of pancreatic cancer (another rare cancer), I continue to realize the limited options that some of these cancers have for a cure - or for at least longer term survival.  

I appreciate any donation to help directly fund rare cancer research at MSKCC.  

Your gift can give people with rare cancers a better future through new and improved treatments. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival supporters have provided resources to hundreds of doctors and scientists to pursue bold ideas that have led to the FDA approval of new drugs, lifesaving clinical trials, and four state-of-the-art DNA sequencers that are aiding in key cancer discoveries.

50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
Did you know that, when combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer? These are cancers you’ve likely heard of — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers.

100% of Your Donation Supports Research
Every dollar you give funds 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 everywhere.

6 Months for Fast Impact
Rare cancer research is underfunded, and too often people don’t have proven treatments. Time matters. Your gift will be in the hands of researchers six months after fundraising ends and, as a donor, you will learn about the projects supported.

Thank you!
