We'd be honored to represent your donation to #endcancer!
We feel truly honored to serve as the 2017 Chairs of MD Anderson’s Boot Walk to End Cancer® in its second year. We’d be delighted to have your support as we don our boots on Saturday, November 11 for the 1.2-mile stroll in the Texas Medical Center along with thousands of other cancer fighters. Funds raised from this event are pivotal in fueling the research engine to #endcancer. Last year’s event exceeded all expectations with 6,800 participants and over $985,000 raised, 100% of which supports MD Anderson's bold mission to eliminate cancer through outstanding, transformational research and life-saving programs.
Cancer doesn't care what kind of boots you wear – it affects everyone, something we know all too well. With grateful hearts and now thriving health, we’re deeply thankful for our world-class medical teams who treated us with boundless care and compassion during our personal battles with breast, prostate and ocular melanoma cancers. Since our first diagnosis 19 years ago, we’ve witnessed great strides being made such as targeted therapies, less invasive surgeries, breakthroughs in immunotherapy, and more.
However, the battle to end cancer is far from won. Tremendous need remains in expediting essential transformational research to stop cancer from taking the lives of too many patients – our loved ones, family and friends. This urgent need to accelerate research on ALL types of cancers is why we are passionate about chairing this unique fundraising campaign and are asking for your support.
We hope you will partner up with us to kick cancer out of town! Your gift will enable research to move quickly in the fight against cancer, to pursue new ideas, develop new tests and treatments, and offer new hope to patients and their families.
With heartfelt gratitude,
Dorothy and Malcolm Paterson
