The work of the VHL Alliance is difficult. Together, with our hard working staff, we need to continue to expand ways to support our stakeholders, further educate patients and healthcare professionals, alike, raise awareness of the involvement of the VHL gene pathway in many forms of cancer, and continue to fund important research leading to a cure.
It takes teamwork to live our mission and to ultimately reach our dream of finding a cure for VHL. We are all part of that team! Each year we ask that all those directly or indirectly impacted by VHL to financially contribute to the VHL Alliance. This year we ask that you dig as deep as possible. We at the VHL Alliance know that that amount is going to be different for each individual, but we also know that together we can reach our goal of raising $275,000 by the end of the year and $825,000 by June 30, 2017, the end of our fiscal year. We owe this to ourselves, our children, their children, and generations to come. Together, let us each commit to giving forward in a meaningful way!
Thanks to your contributions, we raised over $775,000 during our 2015 fiscal year. Research was the greatest expenditure; research to find the cure. Together we can exceed last year’s success by further enabling our capacity to achieve our mission: “VHLA is dedicated to research, education, and support to improve diagnosis, treatment, and quality of life for those affected by VHL.”
