I’m Obliteriding (walking) to cure cancer faster — and I need your support! This August, I'm joining thousands of people in Seattle to bike, run, walk, and raise money to obliterate cancer.
I'm doing this because I'm a melanoma survivor. I had melanoma in my late 20s. Thankfully mine was caught early and I'm almost 20 years on.
I’m doing this because I've seen the suffering from cancer: my aunt Ella (breast cancer survivor), great-uncle Noel (died from lung cancer), Jeff's grandma Glenrose (died from cancer), Jeff's aunt (died from non-hodgkins lymphoma), and Richard, a colleague of 10 years (died from pancreatic cancer). And others.
I’m ready for a world where no family has to fear this disease. We’re making progress, but we have a long way to go: One in three people will still face cancer in their lifetime.
Every Obliteride-raised dollar goes to lifesaving research at Fred Hutch — and the Hutch won’t stop they have cures for all cancers. Already, researchers there are advancing breakthrough treatments, ramping up prevention and diagnosis, and bringing together the best minds in science, tech, and business to save more lives, more quickly.
Bold research takes money — and that’s where we come in.
Please donate today and join me in putting cancer in its place: behind us.
