Grand Central Curable
Hey! This is Sheena of Team ‘Grand Central Curable’ (Get it? Because Grand Central Terminal > Curable? It’s brilliant, I know)
(don’t worry, we’ve already decided that I highkey *won’t* be in charge of naming the team next year)
Anyway, I could’ve chosen to not edit the team page blurb, but to be honest, this year is a pretty special one for me! November 15 will mark 5 years since doctors at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto found the tumour (and when I later received my diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma).
Needless to say, everything worked out! I’m here in NYC now kicking ass as a cancer researcher at NYU (studying lymphoma) and am living proof that fundraising events for cancer research such as the Terry Fox Run really do go a long way to helping people like me out.
If you’ve gotten this far into my little blurb, I hope that you’ll take the time to donate what you can to the cause! I know it’s hard to visualize what kind of impact your donation can make, but as a cancer survivor and as a current researcher, I can assure you that every single dollar truly does go a long way to help the lives of those combatting this awful disease.
Thanks for your time!!!
We're raising money the Terry Fox Run for Cancer Research in New York City.
100% of every dollar you give supports new research directed by Dr. Renier Brentjens at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK). Dr. Brentjens’ lab focuses on immunotherapy research to treat acute and chronic leukemias.
"No matter how promising the research or how inspired the scientists, nothing can happen without the resources to fund the work. We now have many reasons to feel hopeful about using T cells in the treatment of many kinds of cancer, and we wouldn't be where we are without the support from organizations like The Terry Fox Run." ~ Dr. Renier Brentjens
CANCER IS NEVER STRAIGHTFORWARD
Cancer touches too many lives and hits too close to home, so we are doing what we can to stop this terrible disease. We are committed to raising money to help fund Dr. Brentjens’ research at MSK, and need your help. Please make any size donation to join us in this fight!
SUPPORT LIFESAVING RESEARCH
None of Dr. Brentjens’ research would have been possible without the resources from donors like you. Since the Terry Fox Run for cancer research in New York City began more than two decades ago, over $3 million has been raised. Just a reminder: 100% of your gift goes to research. Be a part of the fight in ending cancer, donate today!
