JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
I'm participating in the annual Equinox West LA ride in support of Cycle for Survival - the movement to beat rare cancers. Approximately half of all people fighting cancer are fighting a rare one, including my grandfather who lost his 14 month battle to Mesothelioma in October 2016. Rare cancer patients deserve more hope, and more effective treatment options - and fast.
100% of every dollar will fund pioneering rare cancer research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). As you know, I'm not a doctor or researcher, so this is the best way I know how to do my part in raising awareness and contributing financially to this cause. Please visit my fundraising page here to make a fully tax-deductible donation (if you are able), or contact me for more information on how to support in other ways. With your help, we're making real progress, and together, we'll win this fight.
This organization isn't the only of it's kind, but it means the world to me that charities like this are taking steps to make sure that rare cancers like Grandpa's are being combated and will one day become curable. My upcoming ride is in memory of Grandpa Butch.
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!
