- Why Immunotherapy
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! My profile picture shows my mother and my dog both diagnosed with cancer within a month of each other. I am happy to report that they are doing great and, as you can see, they've formed a special bond over the experience, but this shows how pervasive this terrible disease is and how it can strike our loved ones or ourselves at any time.
Cancer can affect anyone, which is why I am proud to be participating in this event that will help create the Answer to Cancer. My mother, my closest friends, my family members, even my dog have had to struggle against this terrible disease. The Cancer Research Institute is working hard to bring a new and promising way to treat cancer, called immunotherapy, to all cancer patients.
Please make a donation today to help me reach my fundraising goal. 100% of all donations will go to support lifesaving cancer research.
I am grateful for your donations and for your help in spreading the word. Together, we will find the Answer to Cancer!
