Michal Goodman, the daughter of a good friend of mine was recently diagnosed with a rare cancer called Synovial Sarcoma and has been undergoing treatment at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.  She is scheduled for a major and, G-d willing, successful surgery this Thursday, January 31, 2013.  David (Michal's dad) sent around an email I'd like to share..

"We are thankful to all of you who have prayed for Michal and expressed your support in other ways.  Here is another opportunity for those interested.
On March 3, 2013 both our sons-in-law, Ben Coleman (Michal’s husband) and  Sean Wasserman, will be participating in Cycle for Survival, the national, indoor team cycling event that has raised more than $20 million in support of life-changing research on rare cancers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, one of the world's premiere cancer research institutions. 

100% of the funds raised through this ride go directly to MSKCC's research of rare cancer, like Synovial Sarcoma, making us feel very personally connected to this cause. With your help, we can move closer to finding out how to cure cancers like the one Michal is battling right now.

The 2012 ride donations were already put to work in twenty-eight different MSK labs and clinics – targeting a wide range of rare cancers.  This progress – and the hope it brings to patients and their families – is only possible because of thoughtful contributions from people like you!  We are asking you to join the battle and make a gift to support our ride against cancer.  The link below will bring you to our fundraising page, where you can make a tax-deductible online donation."
