“My hope is that one day, we can say, ‘Here’s a pill for cancer.’ This may not happen in my lifetime, but I know that every dollar gets us closer to the cure.”
“I had to do something. I thought with my help, maybe Sylvester can find a cure. I needed to know I could make a difference.”
“We’ve come such a long way in curing cancers, and Sylvester has done such a wonderful job with the research and their talent. We’re happy to support their efforts.”
The impact of your legacy of giving is priceless. We will celebrate your support with a special Visionary Dinner and an exclusive presentation of breakthrough research at Sylvester, delivered by Dr. Nimer and leading physician-scientists. The timing and location of this event will take all COVID-19 health and safety guidelines into consideration.
I believe you can help engage brilliant minds and accelerate scientific innovation to cure cancer. Will you join us to amplify Sylvester’s impact and save more lives? I look forward to hearing from you.
