On September 19th, 2013 - Eric's parents, brother, and nephew met with Dr. Zhang and Dr. Shull at the McArdle Laboratory for Cancer research, where a novel leukemia research study is being conducted that has been dedicated to Eric. You may recall that back in 2009, Eric made a similar trip to the lab and was able to give them $10,000 towards their efforts. (Click here to read that article). Dr. Zhang is planning to publish their results very soon, and we can tell you that they are nothing short of amazing. Their work has been very long and meticulous. We will report more on this as soon as it becomes available!
Well, this time the researchers were presented with a check for $15,000! Funds came from donations this year towards Mike's Ironman, as well as donations that came in when Eric aired his final video Thank you so much for your enduring support, this is all made possible by you.
August 23, 2013 - Today marks 1 year already since the tragic passing of our beloved Eric McLean. It is also his older brother Mike's 31st birthday, who is eagerly trying to raise money for a leukemia research study that has been dedicated to Eric, at the McArdle Laboratory for Cancer Research in Madison, WI.
Please consider helping to honor Eric's fight, and celebrate Mike's birthday wish, by donating to the research study. Anyone that donates $25 or more will have their name written on an article of clothing that Mike will wear at the Ironman Wisconsin on Sunday September 8th, 2013.
