So far i've received $400 in donations which means, with MetLife's matching, Cycle for Survival will get $800.

There's still time to get in. Also, if you itemize your deductions on your 2017 taxes, you'll get a tax break.

I'm in West Palm and heading home when standing in line for the TSA, a woman saw the shirt I was wearing and said " I have to tell you how grateful I am for MSKCC and C4S". She tells me that the treatments she was receiving in Boston were not helping and was transferred to MSKCC. There she was part of a clinical test that was partially paid for by C4S and within months she was improving and her quality of life was renewed. It's been 3 years and she's returned to a "normal" life and is in remission. She credits C4S and MSKCC for her current good health. She gave me a hug and disappeared into the crowd.

Over the years i've met fellow participants in C4S, but this was the first time i randomly met someone who directly benefited from the treatment funded by C4S.

Very cool Glenn. You never know who you're helping or when or where you're going to meet them.
Still Monkeying Around. Not afraid to tell you how I really feel.

The event was yesterday and our team, Team Gray Matter, raised $22,129. A bit less than last year, but we lost a few family/friends that donated in the past.

So far Team Gray Matter has raised over $150,000 since 2011.

Our team captain, Maria, along with myself, Toby and Miss Noa.

So far, Cycle for Survival 2018 has raised over $32,000,000 and over $171,000,000 since 2007.

You can still donate until April 1st, so if you didn't.. please do.
