JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
I first participated in Cycle for Survival last year. At that time I had no personal connection, I simply wanted to support a good cause. Of course all that changed this past October when I was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer and my world came to a crashing halt.
Since then, I've had my ups and downs (some of you have witnessed this personally, sorry about that) but the one thing that makes me feel better through all of this is understanding that I have a powerful voice and I hope that I can use my experience to help others.
Some of you have been following my journey closely so, as an update, I had a successful surgery a few weeks ago and was given a clean bill of health. That means technically I'm "cancer free" and won't need to proceed with chemotherapy. I feel incredibly lucky that my personal journey will likely be short-lived, but it's a reminder that not all those out there are this lucky.
That's why I’m raising money for rare cancer research with Cycle for Survival. Join me in this fight by making a donation. It's something we can all do to make a difference for those battling cancer.
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!
