JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
Welcome to our team's page! AvaStrong
In June of 2015 Tim and I were waiting for the doctors to come back to give us Ava's MRI results. As we watched the doctors walk towards us we were frozen with fear bracing ourselves for what they were going to say. I will never forget the pain of hearing a stranger tell you that your daughter has cancer. Instead of letting this news tear us apart we decided that we were going to FIGHT with everything we had to get our daughter through this. We immediately made the decision to bring Ava to Memorial Sloan Kettering where we spent over 2 years in and out of the hospital as Ava received aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments.
Ava just completed nearly 2 and a half years of treatment this past September. Now we continue the fight, praying that the cancer stays away.
Cycle for Survival is so important to us because the funds go directly to MSK, helping fund the fight against rare cancers. We know that the team of doctors, nurses and support staff at MSK are second to none. They need continued support to fund the treatment of those who are ill and to further research ways to better treat this disease.
Tim, Lyndsey, Ava & Jack
We are raising money for Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers.
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: Join our team or 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.
