Help Team Meg Make a Difference in the Race Against Cancer!
The Meg Berté Owen Survivorship Fund honors Meg's life by supporting cancer survivorship research at Memorial Sloan Kettering because, as Meg's story illustrates, entering remission is not the end of the struggle. To date the Fund has raised nearly $2,000,000.
We all run for survivorship to help all those young adults who have survived cancer and are still fighting.
What the Funds Have Been Used for To Date We use these funds to conduct pilot studies that then increase our ability to compete for large funds from the government. A large national study will cost around 2-3 million dollars to conduct over 5 years. We can take $15-20,000, get preliminary data, and be quite successful in then leading large studies aimed at reducing the long-term complications that patients like Meg face. Think of this as seed money!! And quite successful at that.
