Cancer doesn’t care. It doesn’t care about age. It doesn’t care about your family or friends. It doesn’t care about what it takes from us — or who it leaves behind.
In July 2018 I was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of skin cancer called Merkel Cell Carcinoma. One month later I was on an operating table at Roswell Park having the tumor on my scalp removed. Fortunately it was caught early enough and I did not need any follow up procedures or treatments beyond twice annual check-ups and an annual scan.
Now four years later, and while I haven't rung the bell yet, I have no additional symptoms or recurrences of lesions or troubling skin spot. I do, however, have a closet full of hats and every concoction of spf 30 and 50 sunscreens.
Please help me raise critically needed funds to support the thousands of patients like me who turn to Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center for hope each year. Your donation provides funding researchers need right now to investigate new treatment options that could save lives. For every dollar donated, Roswell Park can leverage an additional $13 in new grant funding!
