Dear Friends and Family,
My awesome mom, Nili Adler, (pictured above) was diagnosed with a form of Bladder Cancer in 2010. It returned in 2013, and she then had her 3rd extensive operation. She underwent treatments and, unfortunately the cancer returned. Subsequent treatments were unable to work and she unfortunately passed away on February 25, 2014.
On her behalf, I took part in the Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network’s Walk for Bladder Cancer on Saturday, May 4th of 2013. I am still raising funds and I hope that you will support me.
It is important that we work together to raise awareness and find a cure – although it is not widely discussed, bladder cancer is the 6th most commonly diagnosed cancer in the United States – 4th among men and 11th among women. It is notoriously underfunded. Let's take action!
Because bladder cancer has a very high recurrence rate (50-80%), it requires life-long surveillance and is the most expensive cancer to treat on a per patient basis.
Bladder Cancer Advocacy Network (BCAN) was founded in 2005 and its mission is to increase public awareness about bladder cancer; to advance bladder cancer research; and to provide educational and support services for the bladder cancer community.
All of the proceeds raised from this Walk are going directly to support BCAN’s efforts. At least half of the money is going directly to research, and the rest is going to support their programs such as patient support, webinars, information, and outreach.
I hope that you will join me in fighting for this important cause. Please consider donating to help me achieve my personal fundraising goal!
Thank you so much again for your support! Together we can lead the way to awareness and a cure!
