Dear Friends and Family,
Will you please consider making a small donation to The Bili Project Foundation to help fight bile duct cancer? On June 2, I am cycling around Lake Tahoe to raise money for this cause. My ride is in support of a dear friend and colleague that received news that too many of us have heard. The Bili Project Foundation was founded to support early detection of Bile duct cancer and other biliary system cancers that are among the most difficult to detect. If screening for risk factors or silent symptoms were available, more people would have had a chance for successful treatment at an early stage. Your donation will fund research at UCSF for the Kathy Barboza “Young Investigator Award” to study targeted therapies. I would be honored to receive your support by Friday May 31st.
PS – There are special times when we all get a gentle tap on the shoulder reminding us of our connection to each other. I invite you to take 3 minutes and watch Coach Bill Hart's "Shoulder Taps" video (see youtube link) Thanks Jon!
