I am privileged to ask for your support as I cycle in the 2019 Victory Ride to Cure Cancer, an event which supports the V Foundation for Cancer Research. Your donation enhances the ability of world-class cancer centers in North Carolina and across the United States in their mission to eradicate this disease.
Throughout my career, I have witnessed the amazing strength and courage shown by so many patients, their families, and their friends. It is probable that you know at least one person who has been impacted by cancer as the statistics are truly staggering. One in two men and one in three women in the U.S. will be touched by cancer. The Victory Ride and the V Foundation are committed to changing those numbers, and so am I!
I know first hand that research saves lives, that it is expensive, and that it is under-funded. We can either wring our hands or actively overcome this problem. 100% of the money raised by the Victory Ride will be used to fund research. None of it will be spent on institutional overhead. I am joining the Victory Ride to honor the struggle of all patients and their families and to help the V Foundation achieve victory over cancer. I hope that you will join me in this endeavor with your tax-deductible contribution today!
