On February 11, 2017, I will join the Miami Dolphins and thousands of South Florida residents to tackle cancer here in our community. Over the last six years, the Dolphins Cancer Challenge has raised over $16.5 million with 100% of participant-raised funds going directly to cancer research at the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. Whether you ride, run, walk, volunteer or donate, we are all fighting cancer.
This year, I am fighting cancer too as I was recently diagnosed with Prostate Cancer. Due in part to funds raised through the DCC, my urologist, Dr. Mark Gonzalgo, was recruited several years ago to the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Since my July 2016 robotic surgery performed by Dr. Gonzalgo, I am already back at work as a radiation oncologist at Sylvester and feeling fantastic!
I need your support to help me reach my goal. I thank you for supporting me in my fundraising efforts so that others in South Florida can benefit from the ongoing research and clinical expertise developed at Sylvester to wipe out cancer in our lifetime.
