Help Morgo On A $1 Million Cancer Cause With David Downs
In case you weren’t aware, New Zealand’s own NZTE superstar and author David Downs has recently overcome a nasty cancer scare. Amazingly, he’s already back doing awesome work with NZTE, promoting his latest No.8 Recharged book, as well as all the other projects he gets involved in on behalf of New Zealand.
During his battle with cancer, David was the lucky recipient of treatment in a US clinical study for a new immunotherapy regime, CAR-T cell treatment. Following his return from Boston, he was amazed to discover that a group at New Zealand’s own Malaghan Institute is preparing to trial a next generation CAR-T cell therapy.
And David, inspirationally, has committed to raising $1 million for the Malaghan to help ensure early access to world-leading potentially life-saving treatment becomes a reality to Kiwis. Watch his inspiring video above.
To us at Morgo, this seems like a great cause get behind – David is a wonderful Morgo supporter and loved member of our community, and this fantastic cause is about championing the development of technology in New Zealand, which is what we’re all about.
Check out this video David recorded for us about the science behind the trial, and help us get behind this!
Jenny is giving $10,000 to get things going. All donations, small and large, help. If you can help us progress this world-leading treatment in New Zealand, follow this link:
"CAR T-cell therapy saved my life. I know I got the fairytale outcome –
but this is possible for others too. Let's raise $1 million to help fund the
Malaghan Institute's CAR T-cell therapy programme, and get this
breakthrough technology to other Kiwis that need it."
