Patrick Dempsey Supports Amgen National Cancer Champions

Patrick Dempsey has supported Amgen’s Breakaway from Cancer program since inception a decade ago. Patrick’s mother died of cancer and he created a cancer support center in Maine in her memory.  As busy as he is, he still makes time to support these crucial cancer programs. As a cancer survivor myself, I’m indebted to him for his continuing efforts.

Amgen’s Breakaway From Cancer program is a wonderful support program for cancer survivors. I was honored to be selected as one of 10 national champions for 2015 for my work in creating As a long-time amateur bicycle racer, it’s a thrill to have Phil Liggett doing the voice over for this piece. A huge thanks to Amgen, the Breakaway From Cancer team, and to Patrick Dempsey for his 10 years of support to Breakaway From Cancer. Like to cycle?
