"We're not afraid of you, cancer."
Danny David | Cancer Fundraiser
Before cancer took her, Danny David’s mother had a message for him. “My mom was such a fighter,” he says. “She did well as a participant in clinical trials and believed there was valuable data derived from her fight against cancer.”
Clinical trials are a valuable tool at MD Anderson. Literally hundreds of them are going on at any one time, testing new treatments for both common and rare cancers.
Danny and his family knew that in some small measure his mother’s trial would benefit other women. And we at MD Anderson are grateful Danny has joined our Advance Team to help raise awareness and, just as important, raise money as well.
Says Danny, “MD Anderson kept my mom with us for a lot longer than expected. On top of that, their rigorous academic and research work make them the best repository of both research and clinical studies.”
