For the past four years, it has been my privilege to put aside my Bruin ties and stand as a Rival United for cancer research! Growing up within the spirit of the UCLA and USC rivalry, Kure It Cancer Research's Rivals United for a Kure was the perfect initiative to get involved with. Uniting Bruins and Trojans TOGETHER to fund innovative and translational cancer research at UCLA and USC?! Absolutely, yes! I know first-hand the terror of a cancer diagnosis, the trial and error of debilitating treatments, and the fear that the cancer might be smarter, stronger, and faster than the doctors' knowledge. We need advancement, improvement and a Kure. Now. Cancer research funded today is the promise of a better tomorrow for those affected by cancer today and the hope for a cancer-free future. For my niece. For your friends & family. For us all. Thank you for joining me in support of this important cause. ________________ *To-date Kure It Cancer Research has funded over $1 Million in cancer research at UCLA Jonsson and USC Norris. **$0.89 cents of every dollar donated to Kure It passes directly through to the best and brightest minds researching underfunded cancers at the best comprehensive cancer centers in the nation.
