Walking the Mountain for Ellen and Cancer
Dear family and friends,
I am writing simply to ask your support in the fight against cancer. Many of us have been personally and deeply affected by this tragic disease, and many more are beginning the challenge to survive and recover from cancer.
The Dutch charity, Alpe d'HuZes, was founded with the aim of converting the powerlessness caused by cancer into strength. We do this by constantly shifting the boundaries of what is possible with as many people as possible. Under the motto 'giving up is not an option' we do not accept restrictions in what we can and will achieve.
You achieve the greatest possible satisfaction when you dedicate yourself with heart and soul to another person. That is our conviction. In memory of the people who died of cancer too early, as an inspiration for the people who are fighting now.
For this reason, I have accepted the challenge to walk the Alpe d'Huez in France in June 2020. My goal is to raise funds that will be used in ongoing and very promising cancer research - research that will continue to find solutions to this dreaded disease. Check out my podcast on Cancer Immunotherapy happening at my institution, Medical University of South Carolina, for more detail ( https://research.musc.edu/stories/science-never-sleeps).
Please consider giving at the link below. All donations go to cancer research. I am paying my own way for everything else.
Thank you for your consideration of this request.
With love, Loret
