Lobo Cancer Challenge

Heme Team

Hematologic malignancies such as leukemia, myeloma and lymphomas, can be some of the most rapidly growing and aggressive malignancies.  Still, most patients with hematoligic malignancies are treatable, and many have been cured with modern immune-therapies, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and stem cell transplantation.  

These therapies can be intense and difficult to manage for patients who are need of resources such as local housing and transportation. The Heme Team is riding to help support of Heme Tumor patients, and to help bring cutting edge medical and cellular therapy to New Mexico. 

Thanks for your support,

Matthew Fero

We’re fighting cancer in our community by joining together to ride in the Lobo Cancer Challenge on September 23. We’ve committed to raising funds each to support cancer research and to help people facing cancer in our community. Please help us by contributing what you can.

Every amount you donate helps and it stays right here, to help people right here, in our community. Every dollar you donate to our ride — 100 percent of it! — goes to cancer research and cancer patient care.

  • The UNM Cancer Center offers many, many different programs to help each person facing cancer and the people who love and support them? Cancer affects every part of life and everyone could use help when faced with fighting it.
