JOIN THE BATTLE. GIVE TO BEAT RARE CANCERS.
I’m riding for Janie Bordinhao, a beautiful and inspiring young woman, teacher, daughter, sister and friend, whose life was cut far too short at the age of 26 due to acute lymphocytic leukemia. I did not know Janie well, but I do know the impact she had on her friends' lives, including my best friend Rachel's. Rachel misses her dear friend every day and she and I both are hopeful about future cancer research & treatments that could help prevent young women like Janie from losing their battles to leukemia.
Your gift can give people with rare cancers a better future through new and improved treatments. Since 2007, Cycle for Survival supporters have provided resources to hundreds of doctors and scientists to pursue bold ideas that have led to the FDA approval of new drugs, lifesaving clinical trials, and four state-of-the-art DNA sequencers that are aiding in key cancer discoveries.
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.
