Duke is an amazing place, a place of hopes, dreams and cures. It was my pleasure to ride a bicycle across America to raise awareness and funds for the Duke Cancer Institute this summer, and I am a lucky man to be treated by the family that is Duke Cancer. Together we cure cancer in our lifetime and that will be a very, very good day.
This video was included in a year end fund raising letter from Karen Cochran, Director of Development at Duke Cancer Institute.
Read Karen's Letter and donate to cure cancer if you can because:
- What if your contribution is the one that tips the scales and we cure cancer?
- Together we cure cancer in our lifetime and save millions of lives.
- Cancer affects everyone: men have a 1 in 2 chance of fighting cancer in their lifetime, women 1 in 3.
- Cancer affects everyone: there are 11,000,000 living with cancer today, apply six degrees of separation and that makes 66,000,000 cancer survivors, friends and family.
- Cancer's funding gap is growing: we fund $19 billion in cancer research while we lose $70 billion in productivity.
- Cancer is a global economic clear and present danger.
- Even if you never fight cancer and no one in your immediate family ever has too, but your contribution saves a life, maybe my life, it matters and is there really a better way to spend money?
- Helping others, in the end, is what all of our lives are about...everything else fades.
