Why I Ride:
I am a never smoker who was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer with the Anaplastic Lymphoma Kinase (ALK) fusion in June 2012. This is referred to as the non-smokers lung cancer and I was originally given only a few months to live. After nine months of treatment on the first drug I showed progression and was sent to UCSD Moores Cancer Center and placed on a clinical trial. This clinical research drug is called an ALK Inhibitor, it shrinks the tumors and inhibits the cancer from spreading, but it is not a cure. It has given me 4 years of quality life and I continue to have stable scan results.
100% of all donations stay in San Diego going to four beneficiaries, Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health, Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute, the Salk Cancer Center and Radys Children's Hospital.
Please help me in this fight by donating to my ride. Any size donation helps. Thank you, Mike
