Last November, after months of treatment, I was informed that chemo was no longer effectively fighting my cancer. In December, the FDA approved a new drug, recently developed, that targets the specific gene responsible for resistance to the chemo. It's working and I feel GREAT! I hope to ride again in this year's Obliteride and am thankful to be able to hold our 1st grandchildren - arriving this summer! Like so many, my life depends on present research to find the next drug or combination of treatments that will control my disease until there's a cure. Last August, "Team Frei" participated in our 2nd Obliteride - an annual fund raising event that supports cancer research at Fred Hutch. 21 of our family and friends rode on our team, and with the support of donors like you, we were able to raise $57,327. That gave us an amazing 2-year total of $91,837.
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer research Center has a mission to end cancer - and soon. I'm asking for your support to continue funding this research in order to bring it to patients and their families.
Please join me in this fight. Ride with me or donate to my ride, and tell others about Obliteride, where 100% of your donation goes toward research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
