BENEFITING: U C San Diego Foundation
Partner with Leader Bikes to Cure Cancer!
Dr. Andrew M. Lowy, of the Moores Cancer Center, UC San Diego, recently successfully operated on the CEO and Founder of Leader Bikes, Salvador Lombroso. Sal was so impressed by Dr. Lowy and his team that he decided to dedicate his company to help fight cancer thru Dr. Lowy's research.
We are excited to announce that Leader Bikes is teaming up with Dr. Lowy to focus on fighting Pancreatic Cancer, and other hard to treat cancers. Dr. Lowy’s research seeks to help patients with pancreatic cancer and rare cancers like cancer of the appendix, where little research effort is directed. Dr. Lowy has made several important discoveries that given support, can be translated into new treatment for cancer patients. Due to large government cutbacks on cancer research funding, this important work is in jeopardy and we are reaching out to you for assistance. Unlike other charities any donation here goes direct to the source. There are no middle men taking a percentage of the funds. Soon pancreatic cancer will be the #2 cancer killer in the United States and we as a community can do something to stop that. Unfortunately funding for pancreas cancer only receives 6% of the government’s cancer research dollars and there are NO dollars directed to support appendix cancer research. There is substantially less funding for these cancers then others that cause fewer deaths and are very well funded. Now is the time to act. Anything helps, but our goal is to raise 2 million dollars. That sounds like a lot, but with 680,000+ followers on Face Book, just $3 each would meet our goal. This will provide a permanent, sustained source of research funding for Dr. Lowy’s research team that is sheltered from dependency on government support. It will honor those affected by cancer, their families and future patients. Help us be the Leaders in more than making great bikes, but in beating cancer as well! Follow the link to make your tax deductible contribution to cancer research and thank you!
There will be an up and coming bike made specifically to raise awareness and a portion of the proceeds will go to Dr. Lowy's research. Leader Bikes will also team up with other companies to create special cycling related event to raise awareness. No one should suffer from these terrible cancers when we are so close to a cure! Besides donating for a cure you are welcome to volunteer in future events.
