My "startup" CureCancerStarter.org is working its way LIVE today. This is a day a year in the making and more thanks is owed than can be given. Helping cancer patients, their friends and families look behind the cancer research curtain to feel a sense of empowerment and inclusion is our mission.
I'm a cancer survivor and we won't make any MONEY from our substantial investment (thus "startup" in quotes). We are placing a "new economy" bet. We are betting that lessons learned and about ability to connect with such an important mission, curing cancer, will provide return.
If that sounds like magical thinking it may be, but, as a cancer survivor who really shouldn't be here if all that mattered was what is down on paper, I know that this "startup" will help change the way we think about and fund cancer research and so CHANGE THE WORLD.
My advice to any startup is anytime you can CHANGE THE WORLD you should take it since those opportunities don't come around all that often. We hope you will JOIN US to help create a new cancer research revolution, one that cures cancer in OUR lifetime.
