Hey now, we know it was yesterday. But, Thanksgiving isn’t just one day a year for us. If you know our story, you know that Team Crafty is thankful for every day!
As we embark on our own Year 5 on cancer mountain, we’d like to share some of the incredible positive mojo you’ve given us with the cancer-fighters close to you. We’ve come up with these 3 simple ways we can do it together:
- We Invite You to Share the Team Crafty Story.

– treatment has changed dramatically for the better in just the past few years
– breakthroughs are happening all the time

2) You Can Give A Friend Some Of Our Keep Rollin’! Gear Designed For Cancer Mountain
I won’t lie to you. The nasty hill is a goddamned awful place that can be cold, lonely, scary, and overwhelming. COVID’s just made it worse. For cancer-long-haulers like me, you typically say goodbye to your family in the hospital or treatment center parking lot and go it alone for your treatment sessions. And, even after your session is done, you often wrestle with side effects for days/weeks on end. Sometimes something as simple as a cozy blanket, a soft bag, a warm hat or scarf – from a special friend – can make a world of difference for you both physically and mentally. That’s where our Keep Rollin’ gear comes in. You can buy and give these items to friends who need a little comfort, help and reassurance. Note, that bright orange rider and the Keep Rollin’! message is from us to you and your friend(s) — Team Crafty is on YOUR team just like you are on ours! All proceeds and additional donations go directly to Conquer Cancer, the ASCO Foundation.

3) You Can Help Launch The “Trailblazers Merit Award” For Cancer Researchers – From Conquer Cancer Foundation / ASCO
I’m really excited about this because it will be awarded to a promising cancer researcher every year starting next June. That’s going to make a lasting, positive impact in the cancer community that will help thousands. I know this because three of my own doctors at UCSF are past winners of merit awards and each one is regarded as a world-class expert in their respective field. The new merit award, named and endowed by Team Crafty, will be helping mint more cancer experts just like them.
You can make a tax deductible charitable donation directly to Conquer Cancer Foundation on our Conquer.org/Team Crafty fundraiser page.
