Our team, Rad.Med.Xfactor, will Ride for Roswell on August 7, 2021. Cancer did not take a break when COVID came about, it actually made the lives of cancer patients that much more scary. I am proud to say that Roswell Park was able to provide safe, high-quality, compassionate care to all of their patients and keep staff safe during the COVID crisis. I believe it was because of generous donors that this was made possible. I am committed to ride to benefit our patients and their families and for continued research that truly makes a difference to everyone that has to fight this hideous disease.
Each year I become more and more committed to raising the funds needed to continue making huge strides in the fight to end cancer. I ride to HONOR my FAMILY members who have been dealt the cancer card. This year, another beautiful gift in my life is fighting like the amazing person they are to conquer cancer. I've always been motivated and passionate about this ride but this one brings it to a whole other level!!!! May they all continue to thrive despite the C word. Also, I ride in GRATITUDE to the PATIENTS, past and present, who make me love my job but hate the need for it. You all make me a better person everyday. It's my way to high five those patients that have turned into friends, the ones who come back to visit and update me on their lives.....10 years or more after treating them. They make coming to work meaningful. A purpose fulfilled. I ride because in the 17 + years I have been working as a radiation therapist at Roswell Park, I have seen changes that have lead to survival. Changes that mean quality of life. There is still so much work to do. There are still so many people I want to come visit me years after treatment. But we need your help to find ways to help them survive with a good quality of life.
Please help me raise critically needed funds for cutting-edge cancer research and compassionate patient-care programs at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. Your donation to my ride might provide the funding that the researchers at Roswell Park need in order to investigate new treatment options that can save lives. These therapies can provide cutting-edge treatment choices to patients in our own community, my childhood home on Long Island and in cancer centers worldwide.
You can make a difference in the fight against cancer by supporting my fundraising efforts. In fact, for EVERY DOLLAR DONATED, Roswell Park CAN LEVERAGE AN ADDITIONAL $13 IN NEW GRANT FUNDING!
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach (and exceed) my fundraising goal. Together, we can help find cancer cures and save lives.
