JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
Welcome to Team OC4CC!
OC4CC was created by my coworker, Sherry Harris, after I was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2014. It stands for Orange Crushes for Crushing Cancer. We rallied around the popular Virginia Beach cocktail as a form of celebration as I reached milestones in my treatment and she ultimately created wristbands to support the moto.
This event seems to be tailor-made for me because I was diagnosed with a rare cancer, followed the MSKCC treatment protocol, and was treated at MSKCC. But everybody is affected by rare cancer one way or the other. This cancer research impacts patients across the world, even if they are not treated at MSKCC.
Please consider joining our team and/or donating. I really do appreciate your support!
Why this matters to us:
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!
