Running 4 Research - MSKCC Fred's Team
Organized by: Nora Daly
We are a group of researchers in the Department of Thoracic Surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Every day, we see the impact that cancer has on the lives of thousands of patients, their friends and family. As professionals who have dedicated our lives to finding a cure to this horrible disease, we also see the incredible amount of work that every single member of the MSKCC team puts in to improving the lives of our patients and helping them fight in this battle. We are also intimately involved in the research side of cancer, and know that without research, we would be fighting an uphill battle. We have chosen to run the 2014 NYC marathon in honor of the strength we see everyday in our patients and our collegues, and hope to raise money to support the continuing effort to learn everything we know about this disease so we can put an end to it. We have chosen to aim our fundraising efforts toward lung cancer research. Lung cancer is the number one cause of cancer deaths each year, and lung cancer patients are a population we know well. We hope you will joing us on the journey towars finding a cure!!
