Team Deeds

Welcome to our team page. From here, you can help support Winship Cancer Institute as we participate in the Winship Win the Fight 5K Run/Walk. 

As you know, one of our most favorite poeple in the world, Denise Roberts, was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer in October of 2016. After removal of the primary tumor and recovering like a rockstar, she started her chemotherapy journey at Winship Cancer Institute. This facility and their staff have been amazing! Everyone is incredibly friendly and supportive! Dr. Wu, the oncologist, is very informatiove and has done excellent work in taking care of our shining star, Deeds! Emory Healthcare in general is an incredible health system that does research that helps so many families, like ours. Colon cancer, for example, has made huge strides in it's treatment options in the past ten years as a result of that research. It is becuase of fundraising opportunities like these that make that research possible! 

About the Institute:
For 80 years, Winship has been a national leader in seeking out new ways to defeat cancer and translating that knowledge into outstanding patient care. Today, with over 250 active Phase I, II and III clinical trials, Winship researchers are dedicated to taking new cancer treatments from bench to bedside. With your contribution today, we can make real progress to help save and improve the lives of those affected by cancer.

We’re so excited to be joining other teams and families in the Atlanta community for the Winship Win the Fight 5K! Will you help us make a difference with a donation of any amount?
