Fight Cancer in 2014

For the past two years, I've ridden in the Cycle for Survival cancer fundraiser, and you've helped me donate thousands of dollars to cancer research (CFS donated over $14 million to cancer research last year).

Cancer is a devastating disease that will eventually impact all of us, either directly, or via our family and friends.  I've lost two grandparents, one uncle, numerous friends, and my beloved dog Kobe to cancer.  Most of you have had a similar experience.

It's a fight we all need to take on.  That's why I'm riding for a third time.

I'll make the same offer that I do each year year--everyone who visits my Cycle for Survival page and donates gets some of my time:

$20 Donation: I will answer any one email you send me
$50 Donation: I will have a 20-minute telephone conversation with you
$100 Donation: I will meet you in person at my office (San Mateo, CA) or in Palo Alto
$500 Donation: I will take you out to a leisurely lunch (Peninsula only)

All proceeds go to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (all expenses for the fundraiser are covered by donations), and are 100% tax deductible.

Just visit my Cycle for Survival page and donate. The website will send me your contact information, and I'll email you to schedule your appointment.

If you've ever lost someone to cancer, it's time to fight back.

UPDATE: Kai Chang is helping out by giving Exploratorium tickets to any donors.  Let me know if you're in the SF Bay Area and have the opportunity to use them!
