In 2013 I was diagnosed with advanced metastatic testicular cancer. I was coughing up blood and spent my first week of chemo in the ICU at Memorial Sloan Kettering. After a year of treatment that included 3 months of chemo and 4 major surgeries I was declared NED (no evidence of disease) which is, for my cancer type, basically cured!

My oncologist, Dr. Darren Feldman, is a researcher-clinician running many studies including two in which I am a subject that are funded by Cycle for Survival. Without the type of life-saving research that Cycle supports I would not be here to ride and my two daughters would not be here to cheer me on.

Rare cancers account for 50% of all cancer cases and the likelihood is very high that in our lifetimes we all will either be diagnosed with a rare cancer or be close to someone who is.

Please support rare cancer research so that more may live, more may thrive and so that more can be treated in ways that are less destructive. 100% of all money donated goes directly to research at MSK.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
