Welcome to my b-day fundraising page in honor of my mom Eva B. Nicolaysen

Dear family and friends:

My BIG 5 0 th birthday is coming up on Aug 17, super thankful to have all these years to celebrate. I've been so blessed with many wonderful celebrations, and it is now time for me to give back.

What I would love to do for my birthday instead of a party, is to help raise funds to find cure to stop the deadly Serous Pappilary Carcinoma cell, which can cause several female cancers such as breast, uterine and ovarian cancers.

My dear dear mamma Eva died of this cancer in January 2013, my grandmother (my mom's mom) of unspecificed breast cancer at the age of 41 in 1946, when my mom was only 4 years old. 

I decided to become a Curestarter for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, an organization very important to me. Please join me in fueling cures by donating to the Hutch. Hutch’s research in this area can save lives. 

Dr. Olson developed “Tumor Paint,” an experimental molecule from scorpionvenom!! which illuminates cancer cells, so surgeons can see tumor margins more clearly. Dr. Galloway helped develop the vaccine that prevents human papillomavirus, which can cause cervical cancer. 

Hoping my effort can make it possible for more friends and families to move beyond cancer and live life to the fullest —meaning more birthdays, and many more wonderful reasons to celebrate together. 

If now is not the time, I completely understand, no worries, just thankful you took the time to read these words.

 

With all my gratitude,

Vibeke
