Welcome to Heather's Fundraising page!
In our lifetime, 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer. I joined the SAA community so that, together, we can change that.
SAA Denver funds benefit three research projects at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Children's Hospital Colorado. The acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) research project, led by Drs. Amanda Winters, Taizo Nakano, and Craig Forester will bring new therapies into Phase 2 clinical trials for pediatric MDS and better define how to diagnose, classify and treat MDS patients. The tumor research project, led by Dr. Adam Green, will characterize the immune response to new brain tumors to better establish which types are amenable to cancer immunotherapy, and provide a new prognostic marker for these diseases. The sepsis biomarker project, led by Dr. Leonora Slatnick, will lead to novel ways of diagnosing and managing infectious complications in immunosuppressed patients.
Please support me by sponsoring this event or making a gift. The money you give will go towards cancer research, prevention and treatment and will make an impact in the fight to find a cure. This year's goal is to bring our local event’s lifetime (5 year) total above the $1M mark, so we need at least $260,000 to get there – we CAN do this!
Thank you for your generosity and may it lead to a cancer-free world!!
