Join Us in Our Fight Against Cancer

Personal Story

Our journey towards supporting cancer research is deeply personal. It began with two irreplaceable losses – the passing of my wife’s mother and my uncle. Both were incredible individuals whose lives were cut short by the cruel hand of cancer.

Memories and Inspiration

My wife’s mother was a beacon of strength and kindness. Her warmth and resilience in the face of adversity left an indelible mark on all who knew her. My uncle, on the other hand, was a mentor and friend whose wisdom and humor brought light into our lives. Their battles with cancer were fought with courage, but sadly, they were battles that they could not win.

Turning Grief into Action

In the wake of our loss, we grappled with grief and the harsh reality of cancer’s impact. But amidst this sorrow, a spark of determination ignited within us. We realized that our experience could be a catalyst for change, a way to honor their memories not just in thought but in action.

Our Commitment

This is why we decided to dedicate a portion of our staking pool’s proceeds to cancer research. It’s more than a donation; it’s a commitment to fight against a disease that has deeply touched our lives. We do this in the hope that one day, other families won’t have to experience the same loss we did.

How to Contribute

We donate 20% of our 170 ADA pool cost to AIRC.
