Too many of my friends and family members have been impacted by cancer; we badly need a cure. Statistically, I am more likely to be diagnosed with cancer in my lifetime due to my family's history with the disease. More troubling, my two daughters face the same disconcerting odds.
There are many cancer charities in the world, but I know firsthand from working with them for years that the V Foundation is one of the very best. Their commitment that 100% of donations go to fund research is as good as it gets.
Any donation gets us closer. A cure for cancer is out there, and I'll be damned if the reason that researchers don't find it soon enough is lack of funding.
