JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Unfortunately the C-word rears its ugly head way too much these days and it has made a large impact upon my life and that of my family’s.
My father was fortunate to beat advance melanoma and is now over 15 years cancer free and his mother, my grandmother beat breast cancer. Unfortunately, my other grandmother lost her battle to lung cancer without ever smoking a day in her life. Cancer has also affected many other friends and loved ones who have fought hard and lost the battle, are still fighting it or have luckily won it.
One of the main reasons I have taken up this cause is for my young cousin, Ella. At the young age of 3 she was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer called Neuroblastoma. Over 5 years later, Ella continues to fight her battle and is still cancer free and living the life of a regular child. This is thanks to Memorial Sloan Kettering and their amazing team of doctors and nurses. They have given Ella another chance when many others were not as lucky. That is why I ask you to donate, so others can be as lucky as Ella and live their lives as a normal baby, child or adult. Help the team at MSK continue their research and fight for those that need us in their corner.
Cycling has been a hobby of mine over the past couple years as a means of fitness and stress relief. Now I can put that hobby to good use. Please donate to my fundraising goal and help me continue the amazing work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
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.
