Though he does not use a sword and shield, every day Dr. Antonio Buzaid goes to work he’s faced with a tireless battle that he knows he cannot lose. You’ll never see Dr. Rafaela Queiroz adorning a cape and mask, but that does not make her job any less heroic. And though most people will go through their lives without ever hearing Dr. Reiner Brentjens’ name, those who have benefitted from his research will forever see him and his team as nothing short of heaven sent.
Those are but three of the doctors that make up the board of the ARD Foundation, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to funding cancer research. They, along with countless other doctors and researchers all over the world, are constantly doing their best to find new and more efficient ways to treat and cure cancer.
But they can’t do it alone. Cancer research is not only a difficult field to navigate, it is also extremely expensive. Everything from medication to equipment and lab space comes with a cost.
This is where you can help. The truth is that you don’t need to be a doctor or researcher to help fight cancer. If we ever hope to beat cancer once and for all, we all must work together. Dr. Buzaid, Dr. Queiroz, and Dr. Brentjens might be in the front lines, but we can still support them by giving them the financial help their research needs.
The ARD Foundation hopes to achieve just that. We rely on the generosity of individuals like you to help make a difference. For this reason, we would hope you’d consider making a donation to our cause.
