Why I Participate:

As a physician scientist at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center, I see the challenges our patients encounter and the strength with which they face them on a daily basis. I understand how cancer research has made a huge impact on how we diagnose, treat, and support our patients. I am honored to have had the opportunity to contribute to those advances. But, I also know that we have a way to go before we can turn discoveries into better care for everyone.

We have established an MDS Center of Excellence dedicated to the care and treatment of patients with myelodysplastic syndromes and related disorders. Together with the Bone Marrow Transplant group, we have assembled a team to raise money for this great cause we so strongly believe in. I will be riding for all of my patients and their families.

In 2013, I rode in the inaugural Pedal the Cause and have participated in the two-day ride every year since. This year, we will again ride over 100 miles across San Diego to raise money to fund the best research ideas at UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center, Salk Cancer Center, Sanford-Burnham Medical Research Institute, and Rady's Children's Hospital.

Please JOIN us in this journey to find a cure by donating to our ride.
