JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
September of 2017 I was diagnosed with a rare sarcoma after a routine dermatology procedure. Luckily I only required one other surgery and so far have been tumor free. Being a former oncology nurse who worked with these patients I knew how much worse things could have been. I felt compelled to get involved somehow. I remembered my former patient, the founder of this charity, and reached out to them. I felt connected on too many levels to not use my gift, story, and abilities to raise money and awareness so others can have the positive outcome I did, or better yet, not ever have to face cancer. I'm doing my part and I now ask you to do yours. This year I’m riding EXTREME (all 4 slots). Will you help me make a difference by donating?
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.
