We all know someone who has been affected by cancer. ne third of all women and half of all men and in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime. I believe that scientific research is the fastest path to curing cancer and other diseases. And I believe that my colleagues at Fred Hutch can get us there.
I am walking in the Fred Hutch Obliteride on August 10 to help support the >300 labs and projects that are focused on saving the lives of people all over the world by conducting innovative, high-impact cancer and HIV-AIDS research, here in Seattle and in our other collaboration locations, such as Uganda. See this page for a list of the diseases that we research: http://www.fredhutch.org/en/diseases.htm
Fred Hutch is learning more about cancer prevention, diagnostics, and treatment, and Obliteride can help us get to cures faster. Solving for this will not happen without private donations...the time has passed to depend solely on the NIH for scientific research funding in the U.S.
Thank you in advance for considering sponsorship of me and/or particpating in Obliteride as a volunteer, walker, runner, or cyclist!
