A big cheer for all our fantastic fundraisers! Thank you so much for everything you’ve done to help give people with cancer the best chance of a cure.
Over 10 years ago, at age 24, Zach was diagnosed with a rare head and neck cancer. Following successful surgery and treatment, he thought he was cured. But devastatingly, late in 2020 Zach found out that his cancer had returned and metastasised to his lungs. By then, it was stage 4.
His was a cancer so rare that research simply hadn’t found a proven way to treat it. But Zach refused to give up. He came to Peter Mac and got involved in some innovative new drug treatments. He is currently responding well.
Your support for Ride to Fight Cancer will help fund important research like this and accelerate the search for new cures to give hope to all people affected by cancer.
