Fundraising

October 3, 2008

Well the 2008 swim season is coming quickly to a close ending with Monday night’s Catalina Channel swim. I wanted to provide an update on the $50,000 goal for the Masonic Cancer Center of Minnesota to find a cure for breast cancer. We are well on our way to making a difference and I’m committed to these crazy swims until we all reach $50,000. To date we are at $5,100 with everyone’s donations and company match programs. This is a huge accomplishment and thank you to all of you that donated.

I had the opportunity to meet Dr. Douglas Yee and the wonderful staff of the Cancer Center as well as the Minnesota Medical Foundation. It was a great experience and I know that we are helping the cause. In fact, in these past few weeks the FDA has approved the breast cancer vaccination for human clinical tests. It is odd that this occurred almost one year to the date of my Channel swim and 10 years from the date that I worked in Dr. Jeffery Miller’s lab working on this same breast cancer vaccination.
