Since its inception, the V Foundation has awarded more than $170 million in breakthrough cancer research, benefiting countless individuals. Linnea Olson is one of many people we are riding for on the Victory Ride.
Linnea was diagnosed with lung cancer 10 years ago. After surgery and undergoing multiple rounds of chemotherapy and other treatments, Linnea’s cancer returned. She was faced with a difficult decision: do nothing, try the same treatments again (such as traditional chemotherapy), or enroll in a phase-one clinical trial. She chose to undergo a clinical trial with one of the V Foundation’s Translational Grant recipients. Today, Linnea is a cancer survivor. Be inspired by Linnea’s story here.
In his 1993 ESPY speech, Jim Valvano said, “We need money for research. It may not save my life. It may save my children’s lives. It may save someone you love.”
Who are you riding for in the 2018 Victory Ride? The research you help fund may save someone you love.
