JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
Welcome to Pinterest's #WesDurkinStrong team page!
Wes Durkin was diagnosed with a rare cancer, Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML), in October 2016 at just 10 months of age. After several rounds of chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, Wes is currently healthy and is back to being a toddler.
But many others who are fighting rare cancers aren't as lucky, which is why we are raising money for Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers.
Research for rare cancers like Wes’s has historically been underfunded, and as a result there have been few advances in treatments for patients with AML in the last 40 years. Cycle for Survival aims to change that by raising funds for rare cancer research - not just for AML, but for many forms of rare cancer - at MSKCC.
Will you help us surpass our fundraising goal?
Rare cancer research is underfunded, but we can change that. While we can’t all be doctors or researchers, we can raise the money that makes their lifesaving work possible. Cycle for Survival supporters have funded over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today.
But there is still more work to be done.
100% of every dollar you give funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
About 50% of all people diagnosed with cancer are battling a rare cancer. Too many people are touched by this disease, and yet many with rare cancers don’t have a proven, if any, treatment plan—that’s unacceptable.
Help us: Make a donation today. Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact.
Thank you in advance for your support! Together, we can bring new and better treatments to patients worldwide.
