Every single dollar helps so don’t be shy.
Donate whatever you can and help obliterate cancer!
For ten years, Todd valiantly fought cancer. He endured more than most could – from hundreds of tests, scans, and hospital stays; surgeries; chemotherapy; immunotherapy; radiation; Cyber Knife and the replacement of his right elbow. And through it all he was a warrior who was driven by fierce dedication, love and loyalty to his friends, family and the firearms community. His smile, wit, humor, generosity and skill will be greatly missed. While a cure could not be found in time to help Todd, he would have wanted the fight to continue.
With the federal government severely cutting the grant money earmarked for cancer research, hospitals and laboratories like those at Hopkins are in desperate need of support. We’re not asking for money for ourselves. All of the money raised through this site goes to specific programs at Johns Hopkins that help cancer patients of today and tomorrow.
Donations raised go to the research of Dr. Hans Hammers, MD, PhD, at the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center. You’ve probably already read some of his work, like Targeting tumor angiogenesis with histone deacetylase inhibitors and my personal favorite, Downregulation of homologous recombination DNA repair genes by HDAC inhibition in prostate cancer is mediated through the E2F1 transcription factor. While Dr. Hammers was treating Todd for kidney cancer, his research targets some of the fundamental properties of cancer. Thus, the work he and his peers at Hopkins are doing on chemo- and immuno-therapies have far reaching implications for anyone facing a cancer diagnosis.
Thank you for your support. Donations are 100% tax deductible. You will receive a tax receipt from Razoo Foundation by email. Razoo is a crowdsourcing platform for charitable donations. Razoo keeps 4.9% of the donation for credit card, staffing, and administrative costs. So more than ninety-five cents out of every dollar you donate goes directly to the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center.
P.S. And for those of you wondering where “Rampage for the Cure” comes from, Todd was a huge fan of the TV show Archer. Just Google “Archer and Rampage” and you’ll get it. And as Todd would say, train hard and stay safe!
