Stopping Cancer Early – The Best Possible Investment


Canary Challenge Featured Team: X-Ray Ninjas – Part 1

September 16, 2014

If you have been reading the awe-inspiring Canary Foundation blog, you know that we have recently featured the Co-Captain of Team X-RAY NINJAS Julie Kaufman. xrn1Julie is a breast cancer survivor that has raised almost $11,000 for early cancer detection in her fundraising for the upcoming Canary Challenge. Her team, X-RAY NINJAS, has been with the Canary Challenge for 3 years and is currently in the 3rd top fundraising spot, making them worthy of our first ever-featured team blog post.

Team X-RAxrn2Y NINJAS consists of physicians, nurses, technologists, family, and friends of the Stanford Interventional Radiology team. In 2013 the team raised over $60,000, and this year they hope to surpass that with a lofty goal of $75,000 from just 24 team members! We at the Canary Foundation are extremely appreciative of this team because they are dedicated doctors and nurses who treat cancer patients on a daily basis. They truly see what the work we are doing for early cancer detection could do to change the lives of their patients, and that inspires them to fundraise for the upcoming Canary Challenge.
