Fundraising Goal
Donor List


Hello Family & Friends,

Once again, I'm raising money for research into rare cancers, such as peritoneal mesothelioma. I hope you will join me by making a donation. Your gift will go directly to help people like Melissa 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:

It's been slightly over a year since Melissa was diagnosed with peritonal mesothelioma. Although she's doing fairly well at the moment, we know that it's only a matter of time before the disease comes back and, as of right now, there is no known cure. Unfortunately, very little research goes into fighting these types of rare and untreatable cancers, and 50% of people with cancer have 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.

The size of your gift doesn't matter! Participation is what counts.  Melissa and I, and millions of others, thank you for your support!
