Fundraising Honor Roll

JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.

I'm raising money for rare cancer research. Will you join me by making a donation? Your gift will directly help people who have few, if any, treatment options. Through Cycle for Survival, progress is accelerating. We arm scientists with the resources to explore pioneering ideas, discover new therapies, and collaborate to find the next breakthrough.

Why this matters to me:

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.

In 2016 I visited Memorial Sloan Kettering for a second opinion on my own rare cancer diagnosis and was treated with kindness and compassion. My own diagnosis opened up a world of awareness that I must have had a blind eye to before. Suddenly everyone around me was somehow being or had somehow been impacted by cancer. It was mind shattering that so many people, in every walk of life, were affected by such a terrible life event. I want to do my part to help anyone touched by cancer.

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.

Thank you for your support!
