This year Team Remission has been renamed The Cancer Killers.
Last year I started this team shortly after I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer and my biggest concern was putting the disease into REMISSION since a cure has not been found. That MISSION is still in play, but since then, we've kicked cancer's butt back so far that my PET scan showed no evidence of disease. Now, it's time to keep it stable until that cure is found! I am not alone. Every member of The Cancer Killers has been deeply affected by this incideous disease. Last year the 7 of us rode for a combined total of 25 people—those we've lost, have had cancer or are currently in treatment. That's too many!!
So, this August, beneath Mount Rainier, bald eagles, and an enormous orange banner, we’re joining thousands of people in Seattle to bike, run, walk, and raise money to obliterate cancer.
We’re doing this because we are ready for a world where no family has to fear this disease. Researchers are making great progress, but we’re not there yet: 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 until 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.
It’s amazing! But bold research takes money — and that’s where you come in.
Please join The Cancer Killers or donate today and join us in putting cancer in its place: behind us.
