JOIN THE BATTLE. Beat Rare Cancers.
100% of the Funds Raised by Team Buster will be Allocated to The Andrea Argenio Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Fund.
As a result of Team Buster's 2019 fundraising and the generosity of our donors, a new fund at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center was established in Andrea’s memory. The Andrea Argenio Neuroendocrine Tumor Research Fund was seeded with the more than $475,000 in unrestricted donations we raised during the 2019 and 2020 events. Andrea’s oncologist, Dr. Diane Reidy-Lagunes, and her team will be using these funds, and those we continue to raise, to advance some promising areas of research. One of the intended areas of focus is the Young Onset Gastrointestinal Cancer Program—a breakthrough initiative led by Dr. Andrea Cercek to research early onset gastrointestinal cancers in adolescents and young adults. The program will address the increasing rates of gastrointestinal malignancies in people under the age of 50 and the unique dynamics within this younger demographic.
