Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer

A Letter from Coach Bill Snyder and 580 WIBW AM

Dear Friends,

Coach Bill Snyder holding Fighting for a Cure shirtAs you may know, I was treated for throat cancer a few months ago. It was a difficult time for not only myself but also my family and coworkers. Thankfully, I am doing fine now. Sadly, others are not so fortunate. Research has saved many lives, but more work is needed. Please join 580 WIBW and me as we help K-State tackle cancer.

Since 1995, the Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer has raised $372,840 for the Johnson Cancer Research Center, where 100 K-State scientists are demystifying cancer, studying possible prevention strategies and developing early-detection and treatment methods while also training future scientists.

Research is making a difference, but it lacks funding. We can help K-State propel its most promising cancer research projects, purchase modern laboratory equipment and train excellent student researchers. Please accept the Wildcat Challenge and make a tax-deductible gift now to help K-State tackle cancer.

Get updates about K-State cancer research from the center's newsletters and Facebook and Twitter pages.

On behalf of all who fight cancer personally and professionally, thank you for accepting our Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer.

Sincerely,

Bill Snyder, Head Football Coach
Kansas State University
