Hearing your doctor say “cancer” can be one of the most challenging moments in any person’s life. Imagine hearing it six times. And once while you’re pregnant. That’s what happened to Brittany Sullivan.

Kenedi Stays "Chicken Strong"

#ChickenStrong is a story brought to life by Kenedi, a brave young cancer survivor, treated by Conquer Cancer-funded researcher, Dr. Wendy Allen-Rhoades. Kenedi and her sister Tenley imagine how their family chickens would unite with strength and courage when faced with a challenge, just as their family did when Kenedi was sick.

Just Keep Swimming

When Liz Beisel’s late father, Ted Beisel, passed away in 2021 from pancreatic cancer, she partnered with Swim Across America to help fund a Conquer Cancer Young Investigator Award. Dr. Peter Yu, an early-career oncologist and pancreatic cancer researcher, received this grant in 2022. This helped launch his promising research project. Liz shares how memories of her dad motivate her to raise vital funds for research, and Dr. Yu shares how and why he works to advance pancreatic cancer care. Together, they reflect on why it matters to accelerate research for every patient.
