    • Science

Cancer doesn’t stop for anyone or anything. With the first phase of our First National Virtual Fundraising event drawing to a close, we wanted to shout out and feature the top 3 fundraisers who have been a powerhouse during this event. All 3 have raised over $1000 for OCF and have been a huge encouragement for those who would also like to do good. 

Nick Kuehl – Nick is a Squamous Cell Carcinoma Survivor and is approaching his two-year anniversary of being diagnosed. To quote Nick, “My journey is not more special or unique than anyone else. We all have our own challenges to overcome. We all know someone who has, is, or will battle cancer in their life.”

Claire Pettingale – Claire walks for her sister Catherine Hackett. Cathy’s specific cause for her oral cancer was one that has not yet been identified. With the impact of COVID-19, those with preexisting health conditions have gone unseen, as the pandemic has taken priority. She wants to bring awareness that everyone is affected by the pandemic, and cancer patients should not be left behind. Claire has been a beacon of light in these uncertain times, and both sisters are amazing and encouraging women. 

Robert Logan – What can we say about Robert except he is a true champion. Robert has been battling HPV16+ cancer for three years, had six tumors, completed chemotherapy and radiation treatments, only for cancer to come back. He has been enrolled in phase 2 clinical trial with Immunotherapy and targeted chemotherapy, and his cancer has been stable for 15 months! Robert has been participating in the Fundraiser every day, and frequently updates his social media with his progress, sharing inspiring photos of himself throughout the month.
