Welcome to the my personal page
This year I will be participating in the 38th Annual Prouty, held on July 12 & 13, 2019, in Hanover, New Hampshire. This will be my 14th Prouty ride.
Your donation will help support the great work happening at the Norris Cotton Cancer Center (NCCC), part of the Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center. Things like patient supportive services are fully funded by your donation. These are things not covered by insurance and are unique to NCCC, including services such as counseling, raiki, massages, food assistance, transportation, support groups, creative arts programs, yoga, nutrition counseling and more. This accounted for 23,000 events from these services last year.
On the Research side of things your donation helped create Prouty Pilot Grants that launched research on many projects, a few of them being; immunotherapy research, this research led to the founding of a bio medical firm formed by NCCC scientists to target cancerous cells with healthy cells. This therapy was successful in treating President Jimmy Carter. Also research at NCCC has led to the FDA currently creating new standards that would ban teens from access to vaping or e-cigarettes which NCCC has shown leads teens to begin smoking, interesting because it does help adults cut back on smoking. Another relatively new development is that a NCCC Doctor has invented a camera that visually tracks Radiation treatments directly to the tumor. It has been successfully tested at NCCC and is soon to begin manufacture and be available to all Cancer Centers.
NCCC is one of only 49 Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the United States and the only one in NH and VT as well as the only one based in a rural area. NCCC has 16 affiliated facilities throughout NH and VT. This gives NCCC a unique look at Cancer and ways to treat it, cure it, and prevent it as well as giving patients options on where they can be treated.
As of this Fall I have joined the Board of Directors of the Friends of the Norris Cotton Cancer Center and am honored to be a part of this fund raising branch of NCCC.
