As I've mentioned several times on Facebook, my brother Matt is an Oncologist and cancer researcher at the University of New Mexico Comprehensive Cancer Center. In his research lab he studies genes that cause cancer. He also studies new cancer therapies (for example new stem cell therapies) both in the lab and in human clinical trials. Matt takes care of patients with hematological malignancies like leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. In addition, he's the Director of UNM's new Stem Cell Transplant Program, and the leader of the Hematological Clinical Trials Group for the New Mexico Cancer Care Alliance.
Anders and I will ride with him in UNM's Lobo Cancer Challenge, a fundraiser to support cancer research and to help people facing cancer. What I love about this fundraiser is that EVERY dollar donated — 100 percent of it! — goes directly to cancer research and cancer patient care. If you feel as strongly about these subjects as I do, please consider donating to this wonderful cause!
