I ride for my sister, my best friend, my earth angel.


Diagnosed with clear cell carcinoma at age 18, Jenn was the epitome of a rare case. When doctors at Dana Farber Cancer Institute couldn't treat her aggressive tumor, we relocated to New York City to seek care at Memorial Sloan Kettering. With the expertise and extraordinary care of the doctors, nurses, and truly everyone at MSK, Jenn battled through. After a three year fight, she was declared cancer free.

August 2019 marked her 9th year in remission.

To put it simply, MSK saved her life.

It means the world to me to be participating in Cycle for Survival for Jenn. We ride for her, for those who are battling cancer, and for those who have lost their fight. Every single dollar goes toward rare cancer research and helps the amazing doctors at MSK continue their work for those who have few, if any, treatment options. Additionally, Jenn's doctor, Dr. Abu-Rustum, is conducting research that directly benefits from this funding. We couldn't think of a better doctor - or person - to give back to.

THANK YOU for your support. I love you all.

With a grateful heart,





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.
