JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
Welcome to Spin Squad's team page!
We are raising money for Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers. Rare cancer research is underfunded, and while we can’t all be doctors or researchers, we can raise the money that makes their lifesaving work possible.
How Rare Cancer Has Impacted Me
I started this team in memory of my father, David Nadler, who passed away in February 2015. He had cancer of unknown primary (CUD), meaning that the original source of the cancer could not be identified - this represents only 2%-5% of all cancers.
When the exact type of cancer is not known, it's harder for doctors to know what treatment is most likely to help. Cycle for Survival has funded over one hundred clinical trials and studies, leading to new discoveries that are helping patients today. Hopefully these new discoveries will include more advanced lab tests to determine where cancer starts so others can receive better treatment than what was available for my dad.
Rare Cancer is Not Actually Rare!
50% of all people diagnosed with cancer are battling a rare cancer. Leukemia, ovarian, brain, and pancreatic cancers are considered rare, as are all pediatric cancers, and hundreds of others. Too many people are touched by this disease, and yet many with rare cancers don’t have a proven, if any, treatment plan.
100% of every dollar you give funds pioneering research led by Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
6 Months for Fast Impact. Your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. There’s no time to waste: with your help, new discoveries will be made each year.
