JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
In January of 2015 my late wife, Linda Markey, was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer. At the time we had 3 kids in high school. While I was managing Linda's cancer treatment - multiple chemo rounds each week - she was ordering me to attend every college tour, swim meet, athletic banquet and academic award ceremony in our kids' lives. In spite of the excrutiating pain of her cancer, she remained selflessly focused on her kids throughout her six month battle. That selflessness has inspired me to form this team - and to grow it every year.
I’m riding and raising money for rare cancer research. 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. I've seen firsthand how MSK's research/treatment is providing better and longer quality of life to patients battling the same type of cancer that Linda fought.
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.
