The 9th PMC bike ride of “Team ASPS”: More donations for preclinical studies of Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma

On the first weekend of August 2012, “Team ASPS” participated for the 9th time in the Pan-Massachusetts Challenge (PMC) bike ride. This bike-a-thon crosses Massachusetts to raise money for cancer research and treatment at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. Our team rode 90 miles and raised $30,705 specifically dedicated for finding a cure for ASPS.

Donation this year will specifically support preclinical testing of novel drugs for the cure of ASPS.
Dr. George Demetri, Dr. Andrew Wagner, Dr. Massimo Loda and Dr. Ewa Sicinska at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston conduct those preclinical studies and reserach.

I will continue to update you here on this website on the results of those efforts that were initiated almost 10 years ago.

Cure ASPS International thanks “Team ASPS”, our donors and to the ASPS community for all the relentless support for our efforts to find a cure for ASPS.

Below are Photos taken during the 2012 PMC bike ride. Best wishes for a Happy New Year!
