THE STORY:

Our Portland to Coast walking team, "Stay with It" is hosting a fundraiser which benefits Providence Cancer Center, a non profit in Northwest. The money goes directly for cancer research in the center. Our team even clarified what specifically this fundraising money will go towards, and it goes towards lab supplies, testing materials, and machinery for the purposes of cancer research.

The Providence Cancer Center research is diversified but a primary focus area is immunotherapy, which has been around for a while but recently been revisited as another method to combat cancer, it uses the body’s immune system to fight the illness. It’s a similar concept to a vaccine. Chemotherapy is generally critiqued for killing bad cells along with the good, and this would basically be strengthening your own system to fight off the illness, which is be pretty neat.. The team captain of this team benefited from one such treatment which will help prevent cervical cancer, which is what her grandmother died from. Providence Cancer Center's Dr. Urba has been publishing every few months new research on this subject- you can read about it by googling him on PubMed.

Cancer has impacted everyone in different ways, and donating for this cause is a way for us to fight back. Thanks very much for visiting our page and for considering this cause. Have a lovely day.
