Thank you for supporting The Katha Diddel & Warren Family Fund for Genome Research which I, along with my children Paul, Thompson, and Kiki, have established at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
This fund will provide crucial support for the physician-researchers at MSK who are developing
personalized treatments for patients based on the genetic mutations in their tumors—delivering less toxic, cancer-killing medicine quickly and directly.
Fundraising for cancer therapies has always been deeply meaningful to David, my family, and me. I have raised money for cancer research and other diseases through endurance sports, including triathlons, Ironman, and marathons. I started when I was 18 years old at Brown University where I participated in my first 30 Hour Dance Marathon for cancer research. For 6 years, I've participated in the Pan-Mass Challenge for Cancer Research that entails a 200-mile, 2-day bike ride. This year, David and I ran the New York City Marathon together for the first time.
Cancer research at the cellular/genome level is producing treatments that are making life giving difference right now to the people we love fighting cancer. It is the gift of more time and health.
Your donation is so important of our breakthrough new Fund.
Gratefully and With Love,
Katha, Paul, Thompson and Kiki
