2019 marks my 11th year of participating in this event, and my 11th year in remission from stage 3B Hodgkins Lymphoma. I help organize this campaign every year because I believe in the work that we do, and I'm proud of the work that we do. TDHC is a result of a bunch of friends volunteering their time and talents for a cause, and it has led to almost $800,000 raised to fight blood cancers.
We couldn’t have done it without the support of our awesome friends and family, and we wouldn’t keep doing this every year if it wasn’t so important. Without the advancements in cancer research and medicine, I would not be here today. I owe everything to cancer research, and to the people before me who worked so hard to raise the funding for it. TDHC is my way to give back. People are still diagnosed every day, every 3 minutes. The survival rate for myeloma is still just 33%. More research is critically needed, and your support will help LLS make further advancements in cancer treatment, and maybe one day, even a cure.
Thanks to friends and family for supporting our team through the years. Last year was particularly amazing - We Roll on Shabbos took top honors in the bowling tournament and 2nd place in fundraising, raising over $10,000 as a team! The event overall was amazing and we exceeded the set campaign goal of raising another $60,000. It will be a tough one to follow, but we always try our best.
If you can help out again this year, please support us by making an online donation on this page, buying raffle tickets, starting a bowling team, becoming a corporate sponsor, or donating a gift certificate or prize for our silent auction. There are so many ways to help. Every dollar adds up and all donations are tax deductible.
THANK YOU to the many family and friends who have generously donated money, who have started bowling teams and fundraised, who have joined the organizing committee to help plan and grow this event... to everyone who has helped out by doing what they can year after year. You humble me, and you have all contributed to the success of The Dude Hates Cancer. This event would not be possible without the support and generosity of people like you.
The Dude abides.
With love and gratitude,
