Notes of Encouragement for Martin and Martin's Ride to cure cancer:

June 15, 2010

Dear Marty,

I am so pleased that you have named Duke Comprehensive Cancer Center as the beneficiary of the funds raised from Martin's Ride to Cure Cancer. Thank you for taking on such a challenging project to raise awareness of the need to support cancer research. Yours is a noble effort.

The funds that you raise can and will be used to support innovative research of our brightest investigators and address the critical work of developing novel therapies for patients fighting cancer. As you know, we have made significant progress at Duke in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Our work with Genomics, targeted therapies and personalized medicine, cell signaling and cell therapy is groundbreaking.

Still, there is much more work to be done.

Thank you again for your dedication to the fight against cancer.

I had such a nice time with you, I am so glad you came through Colorado and I could share with you my back yard. You are doing great and I am so proud of you. Do what you can up the mountain passes and then let the boys get you to the top so you can fly down and smile all the way to dinner! Love ya bro :)
