New Soldier In War On Cancer: The Blind Mole Rat

One of the many reasons The Seany Foundation loves the naked mole rat: New Soldier in War on Cancer.

Facts:

  • The naked mole rat is blind and hairless (muy guapo!)

  • The naked mole rat is the only mammal that does not get cancer.

  • The naked mole rat was Sean’s favorite animal (even before he knew they were cancer-free).

  • You can see them on exhibit at the World-Famous San Diego Zoo.  Look for them tucked away in the corner of the Children’s Zoo.

Sarcoma Awareness Week Wrap-Up

According to our friends at Team Sarcoma, with a dozen teams left to report the results of their events, the preliminary count of the number of participants in the Team Sarcoma Initiative’s International Sarcoma Awareness Week is over 14,000 people! There were over 85 events in 14 countries and 28 states in the United States. One of these events was The Seany Lew Charity Poker Tournament, which was met with great success at the Hotel Solamar here in downtown San Diego. The following press release describes some of what took place at the reception for another awareness event that was held in Washington, DC:

Ambassadors from Lithuania, Mexico, and New Zealand gathered with physicians and government representatives on July 24 in Washington, DC, to honor people dealing with sarcoma, a rare and dangerous cancer. The reception was a part of the global Team Sarcoma Initiative (TSI), a growing movement that involved more than 14,000 people in 14 countries last week.”
