By Mark Crafts

Today is World Cancer Research Day, and that’s a very special one for me. You see, down at UCSF Cancer Center, my medical team calls me “a miracle and the future of medicine.” 

I am here today because of decades of cancer research breakthroughs that have made it possible for patients like me to live with cancer. I am writing to ask for your help today because we need to keep the breakthroughs coming for millions of other patients and future patients all around the world.
