Welcome to my personal fundraising page for COACHES VS COVID!
My name is Billy Boyer and I am currently the Minor League Infield and Baserunning coordinator for the Minnesota Twins. In support of Coaches vs. COVID, beginning this Saturday, April 4th, I will be launching a free weekly Zoom Infield and Baserunning Development webinar for any coaches interested in learning about current baseball catching development trends and practices. These conferences are designed to be interactive in nature using a Q&A format. This professional development opportunity is free but designed to raise funds in support of the important COVID-19 research being done at the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA.
The Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center and its partner, Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, are both organizations that are very personal to me and my wife who in 2003 lost her father to melanoma skin cancer and In 2018, my very close friend and catching coach for the NY Yankees Tanner Swanson lost his older sister Ashley Berg to Breast Cancer and these organizations had important roles in their various treatments throughout their long journey's. In addition to Cancer Research, the Fred Hutch is currently leading ground breaking COVID-19 prevention and treatment research involving tracking, testing, vaccine design, and future outbreak prevention initiatives.
Please join this us SATURDAY, April 4th at 6:00p PST 9:00p EST and every subsequent Saturday for the forseeable future to do our part!
Please DONATE, share and consider joining our COACHES VS. COVID team to assit with our support efforts. Our recommended donation is $5-25 per webinar .100% of raised funds will go directly to the Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center in Seattle, WA
Please join me as I raise funds for Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.
I care about ending cancer because too many people still lose loved ones to this disease.
I believe in Fred Hutch because scientists there are leading the charge to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. For example, Hutch researchers are harnessing the immune system to fight tumors. They are developing new treatments for people who once had no options. And they are finding new ways to use more and better data to improve care. Together, their work is improving countless lives and bringing the Hutch closer to their ultimate goal: cures for most, if not all, cancers.
I want to end this disease, and I know you do, too. Let’s invest in the world-changing science that will get us there.
Please join me and donate today. Thank you!
Did you know...
Bone marrow transplantation, which has helped more than 1 million people, was pioneered by Dr. E. Donnall Thomas at Fred Hutch. His insight earned him a Nobel Prize and provided the first example of the human immune system’s power to fight cancer.
Drs. Phil Greenberg and Stanley Riddell are continuing Don’s legacy, leading the way in the game-changing field of immunotherapy. They are perfecting an approach that could render chemotherapy and radiation obsolete, making cancer treatment less grueling.
Dr. Denise Galloway’s research paved the way for a groundbreaking vaccine that prevents human papillomavirus, or HPV — a common infection that can cause cervical and head and neck cancers. A vaccine for some cancers? Yes. It started at Fred Hutch.
Today, Hutch scientists are partnering with experts in technology and data science to put data to work: turning patterns and trends into insights to help us prevent cancer, personalize treatment, and find new ways to stop this disease.
