JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
For the third year, I'm raising 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.
When asked “why I ride,” I’m forever riding for the gift of Steve’s health (4 years since his surgery at MSKCC and still cancer-free!) and in memory of my wonderful niece, Vickie, a brilliant surgeon, mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend and niece who lost her brave battle way too soon. I’m also riding for my friends who are still in treatment — there are way too many — and their wonderful spouses and other caregivers who are fighting on two fronts. And I’m riding for those I’ve lost and their families and friends.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support!
