Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer, Fall 2018

A Letter from Coach Bill Snyder and 580 WIBW AM

Dear Friends of the
Johnson Cancer Research Center,

As you may know, I was treated for throat cancer last year. It was a challenging time for me and my family and associates, and I am very thankful to be doing well now. But not everyone is so fortunate. Research has saved many lives, but more work is needed. Please join 580 WIBW and me as we help Kansas State University tackle cancer.

Since 1995, the Wildcat Challenge to Tackle Cancer has raised $383,500 for the Johnson Cancer Research Center at Kansas State. Its 100 research teams are investigating cancer initiation and prevention, and developing better diagnostics and treatments. Our faculty is also dedicated to training the next generation of scientists.

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

You can learn more about Kansas State University cancer research from the center's newsletter 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

with

Larry E. Riggins, Market Manager
Alpha Media Topeka
