We are ONE TEAM united to fight cancer. RISE Boxing is partnering with 5 For The Fight, who invites everyone to give $5 for the fight against cancer.
Please join us in supporting cancer research at Huntsman Cancer Institute. We are funding researchers like these:
Alana Welm, PhD, Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah
How can we stop cancer from spreading in the body and causing lethal disease?
Area of research:
I study how cancer cells escape from the primary site and create new tumors.
Why 5 For The Fight: What a great, simple concept! Just as cancer affects all of us in one way or another, we can all contribute to affect change and hope for the future – it doesn’t take a millionaire.
Dr. Joshua Schiffman, Huntsman Cancer Institute
What if we focus on who’s getting less cancer, not who’s getting more?
Over its lifetime, an elephant’s chance of dying from cancer is less than 5 percent. Among other things, my lab applies this finding to humans.
We are so grateful for 5 For The Fight for their support. We can only fight cancer when we do it together-- it takes a groundswell.
Martin McMahon, PhD Huntsman Cancer Institute at the University of Utah
We don’t have drugs that target certain genetic changes in cancer. What if we could change that?
Research in my lab focuses on the importance of RAS, a genetic driver of many cancers. We work to understand how RAS works to drive cancers like melanoma, pancreas, and lung cancer, and how drugs can be used to manage it.
Why 5 For The Fight:
5 For The Fight embodies the remarkable optimism and resilience of so many of our patients who participate in clinical trials that advance the success of new treatments for cancer.
