F-cancer! Decade ride!

It’s that time again..... time to kick cancer’s ass.  On January 26th I will be riding for my 10th year in Cycle For Survival!  I can’t believe it’s been 10 years since Jeff was our team captain, and we, as a family, were preparing for our first ride in this event.  At the time, I had no idea what a movement this truly is  In the past 10 years I have seen this event go from raising $10 million in 2011, to over $40 million last year, with EVERY dollar going directly to work on rare cancer research.  As years come and go, I am finding it harder (if not impossible) to come across someone who have not been touched by cancer.  I hold on to the hope that the day will come when it’s rare (if not impossible) to come across someone who has no treatment options available.  That’s what this event is all about!  I know that Jeff is with me in spirit on this journey, and that he is proud of all of the work being done in an effort to cure these rare diseases.  To learn more about this event, please see below, and help me make a difference! 


Your gift can give people with rare cancers a better future through new and improved treatments. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival supporters have provided resources to hundreds of doctors and scientists to pursue bold ideas that have led to the FDA approval of new drugs, lifesaving clinical trials, and four state-of-the-art DNA sequencers that are aiding in key cancer discoveries.

50% of People with Cancer Have a Rare Cancer
Did you know that, when combined, about half of all patients fighting cancer are fighting a rare cancer? These are cancers you’ve likely heard of — such as leukemia, lymphoma, thyroid, ovarian, brain, pancreatic, and all pediatric cancers.

100% of Your Donation Supports Research
Every dollar you give funds 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 everywhere.

6 Months for Fast Impact
Rare cancer research is underfunded, and too often people don’t have proven treatments. Time matters. Your gift will be in the hands of researchers six months after fundraising ends and, as a donor, you will learn about the projects supported.

Thank you!
