#GivingTuesday is a global movement that inspires people everywhere to come together and support the causes that are important to them, such as breakthrough cancer research at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center.

As a nonprofit organization, Georgetown Lombardi relies on the generosity of the community … and friends like you. Please join us on #GivingTuesday and accelerate breakthrough research. Your contribution will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $250,000. That means you’ll make twice the impact on laboratory discoveries that lead to new clinical trials, improved treatments, and lifesaving cures. Please give now.

Make a Difference for People Like Abi

Abi Tooker is a nurse at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. She’s also a patient who was diagnosed with stage-4 colon cancer at the young age of 31. After a biopsy revealed her cancer was more advanced than expected, she began receiving chemotherapy until she could undergo surgery.

“I had an absolutely incredible surgeon, and really amazing nurses,” Abi says. “What my doctors and nurses have done for me has made so much of a difference.”

Today, Abi is doing great. And her oncologist, Georgetown Lombardi’s Benjamin Weinberg, M.D., is conducting research into possible explanations for the troubling rise in colorectal cancer among younger patients.

Your gift today, doubled through the Matching Gift, will bring twice the help and hope to Abi and others facing cancer this holiday season.
