New EGFR Resisters Branded Hoodies, Sweatshirts, Colors, and Slogans!

*September 2023*

As you may know, the EGFR Resisters are partnering with LUNGevity for 2 more research projects that are focused on EGFR+ lung cancer research. Since we launched our shirt sales fundraising campaign, we have added an additional $1,521 to our funds so please keep your family and friends aware of  this sales, especially now that we have added new styles, colors, and slogans!  Our new slogan is RESEARCH = HOPE

We currently have over $238K towards our $400K goal but need close to $200K more to fully fund these 2 projects. Many of us are biding our time waiting for better treatments after progression on TKIs. etc. Our self-funded research projects are dedicated to addressing the following concerns:

1.    Why do EGFR-positive lung cancers metastasize to the brain? What can we do to treat brain metastases and leptomeningeal disease?
2.    Why do some cancer cells remain after treatment? How can we target the cancer cells with new treatments or combinations?
3.    What is the difference between oligoprogression and oligometastasis? How can we treat oligometastatic disease?
One of our dedicated EGFR Resisters members, Carol Peitzsch, has established our new EGFR Resisters Branded Sales Website stocked with EGFR Resisters Tshirts, sweatshirts, and hoodies. A percentage of each sale will go directly to our EGFR Resisters/LUNGevity research fund. Some people may want to donate cash, however others may want to purchase something for themselves. So let’s all fundraise to outsmart, outlast, and outlive this disease – and score a cool shirt at the same time! Here’s how:
