Working together, our guests were able to achieve something amazing in the Anti-Cancer Challenge, which raised more than half a million dollars towards the lifesaving cancer research currently taking place at the Chao Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. Dr. Rick Van Etten MD Ph.D. serves as the director of the Chao Family Center, and as a Professor at UCI’s School of Medicine. Joining him we have Lana Clay, a childhood leukemia survivor and lifetime advocate, working tirelessly at public speaking engagements, campaigns, marathons, or any other activity that will improve the lives of her fellow cancer survivors. Our final guest is Carlin Motley, fundraising specialist for the Anti-Cancer Challenge here to talk about how she successfully used peer-to-peer fundraising to support a truly inspiring event.
