I’m surrounded by boys. I love them and I want them around for as long as possible. One of the most important men in my life is 80 and out of options to treat his prostate cancer. His cancer means my husband, son, and brother-in-law are at higher risk for the disease. My uncle has prostate cancer. My Dad(s) aren’t out of the woods yet. It’s really important to me to support innovative science that may help one of my boys – either now or later.
Further, I think it’s a damn cool thing to support a community-generated fundraising opportunity. For Science and healthcare innovation! Especially when traditional funding sources don’t show up at the party.
Go get ’em Dan and team. And thanks to Duke for innovating…in fostering both scientific inquiry and novel approaches to financing the science.
