Desert Mountain CARE, a cancer research fundraising organization, raised a record-breaking $550,000 this year. They are planning an even larger event for next year’s 20th annual CARE at Desert Mountain.
The CARE program has raised a total of $5.8 million toward cancer research over the past 19 years, with an impressive 96% of donations going directly to the program. Funds raised go towards local cancer research at Mayo Clinic and HonorHealth.
This year, the CARE program focused efforts on the following programs:
- Optimizing drug and immunotherapy by analyzing tumor DNA sequences and matching them with treatment outcomes
- Detecting tumor DNA fragments through blood tests to facilitate early detection and drug response monitoring
- Cancer Interception – Very early detection and follow-on treatment in “at risk” but currently asymptomatic healthy individuals
With their “FunRaising” initiatives, CARE is able to collect and allocate much-needed funds towards researching a disease that affects a significant number of people and their families. Each event is a fun way to meet new friends at Desert Mountain and be involved in a rewarding experience.
