JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.


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?

Why this matters to us:

Our son Robb, shown in the picture in happier times with our grandchildren Laurel and Robert, died 10 years ago from inoperable brain cancer, the day after his 36th birthday.  We're trying to have some good come from this tragedy by raising money for rare cancer research.

Our daughter in law Jen was asked to speak before the Cycle event in Boston last year. For those of you on Facebook, here is a link to her talk on why we ride.

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!
