After losing four family members to various forms of cancer, I truly believe that the only way to find a cure, is through continued, high level research. In order to continue research at a high level, it takes funding. Unfortunately the government is unable or won't put more dollars towards research. We as a community must step up and do all that we can, to help with the funding. I feel a real sense of pride and accomplishment knowing that I am able to contribute in some small way to raise as much funding as possible so that this important work can continue.
