About I Kicked Cancer’s Butt.org
One week each year, cancer survivor Jeff Warren rides his bike 667-miles from Reno, Nevada, where he was raised, to the front door of the Huntsman Cancer Institute (HCI) in Salt Lake City.
His vision: To find better tolerated, less toxic treatments for cancer and, ultimately, cures for the more than 150 types of this damnable disease.
His goal: Raising money for cancer research at HCI. To quote Jeff: "It's all about the Benjamin's, baby!"
His passion: Kicking cancer's butt!
