JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
2019 will be my 7th year riding in Cycle for Survival with team Spinning for Simo. I started the team to honor the memory of my husband, Jon, who we lost in 2012. Jon suffered from a rare form of cancer called Sarcoma. Rare cancers like this are underfunded and as such, patients have few options available for their care. My team and I raise funds that specifically fuel rare cancer research in hopes that we can change this.
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 sarcoma, 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.
6 Months for Fast Impact
Not only does every dollar go to research, your gift will be in the hands of doctors and researchers within six months of the events. As a donor, you will learn about the projects supported and the breakthroughs made.
To date, our team has raised over $175,000 that has directly funded numerous studies, trials, equipment and more. Please consider supporting us this year as we look to break the $200,000 mark so that even more good work can be done.
Thank you in advance for any support you can provide!
