JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.

Dear Friends,

As some of you may know, David Ingerman, my wonderful husband of over 26 years, recently was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic neuroendocrine cancer. Unfortunately, research programs for rare cancers like David's don't receive the level of funding awarded to more "common" cancers. That's why I'm participating in Memorial Sloan-Kettering's "Cycle for Survival" on February 2nd. I'm not much of a cyclist, but I'm all in to help raise money to find lifesaving cures for rare cancers like David's.

"Cycle for Survival" is a fundraising arm of the world-renowned Memorial Sloan-Kettering cancer research and treatment center in NYC. This year, I've joined the team led by my friend Bill Markey, who lost his beautiful wife Linda to neuroendocrine cancer in July 2015. Our team name is "MetLife Linda Markey."

100% of all donations to "Cycle for Survival" go directly to funding Memorial Sloan-Kettering's rare cancer research programs -- yes, 100%. These studies include a clinical trial that is being led by David's oncologist, Dr. Diane Reidy Lagunes, as well as 2 others for which she is the co-investigator. All 3 studies are specific to neuroendocrine cancer and neuroendocrine tumors.

Please join me in the battle to fight cancer by donating whatever you feel comfortable donating.

I'm riding for David Ingerman. I'm riding for Linda Markey. I'm riding to help Dr. Reidy continue her groundbreaking and lifesaving work.

Here's more info about Cycle for Survival and Memorial Sloan-Kettering:

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.

Thank you for your support!
