On July 8-9, our family will again be participating in The Prouty. As many know our family has been greatly impacted by cancer with Maribel losing her battle in 2016. John’s mother lost her battle in 1996, his aunt Judy in 2009, his aunt Willemien in 1979, his grandfather in 1991 and his grandmother in 2001. Raising funds to support cancer research is important to us and we hope you help us support Dartmouth Cancer Center.
More than one third of all people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetimes.* It’s a universal problem that touches everyone, including the most important people in our lives. This is why I’ve been on the Friends board for 17 years. All of the funds we raise go toward cutting-edge cancer research and crucial patient support services at the Cancer Center.

Here are two ways that you can help support patients, doctors and caregivers in the fight against cancer:
- Join us! Register for The Prouty today.
- Make a gift to our Prouty fundraiser and help us reach our goal. Click the 'donate' button to support our efforts in the 2022 Prouty.
All funds raised will help fund innovative researchers and clinicians who are dedicated to finding ways to prevent, diagnose, and treat cancer. Prouty funds also provide meaningful patient and family support services that are otherwise unfunded—such as support groups, massage, art therapy programs, transportation and grocery assistance, and more.
Thank you for your support!
