JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.

WELCOME TO OUR PAGE!

We are raising money for rare cancer research with Cycle for Survival, the movement to beat rare cancers. Will you help us surpass our fundraising goal? Reese was just 8 when she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. We were both shocked and devestated. No parent expects to hear that news. Ewing’s Sarcoma is an extremely rare cancer, there are fewer than 1000 cases diagnosed annually and only 1-2% of childhood cancers are Ewing’s. We were blessed to be close by MSK and have received amazing care there. Reese went through 14 months of chemotherapy, 32 sessions of radiation and more than 20 surgeries. She also wore an external fixator for a year to regrow the bone in her left arm.  Although her treatment was not easy, because of the research being done at MSK, she is doing well. Why this matters to us:

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.

Join us or make a donation today. Your efforts will fight cancer and make a real impact for people who have few, if any, treatment options. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.

Thank you in advance for your support!

JOIN THE BATTLE.
