A Very Special 'Thank-you'
On behalf of Ridin’ to a Cure, we would like to thank T!NG Creative for the past five years of designing, developing and updating our site.

Rock River Cancer Research Foundation
The Foundation is privileged to manage the net proceeds of the “Ridin’ to a Cure” motorcycle event as well as other donations given to us in trust. It is our responsibility to protect those funds and guarantee those funds go to breast cancer research.
These funds support breast cancer research programs such as new treatment options, diagnosis and critical lab research.
We have since our inception funded projects such as:
1. Clinical research studies at Waukesha Memorial Hospital on lymph node and
cell tracking connected to metastasis and Tamoxafin in chemotherapy.
2. Autogenesis studies on tumor growth inhibitors, immunotherapy drug treatments
and effects of drugs used in chemotherapy.
3. Research on the effects of timing of estrogen receptor activation, iron and proteins
in cells, tumor nutrients that may promote abnormal cell growth and therapies for
breast cancer treatments and the study of long term hormonal adjuvant therapy in
older women with incident breast cancer.
4. Endowed chair position at Medical College of Wisconsin to Dr. Ann Nattinger.
A nationally recognized cancer health services researcher, Dr. Nattinger's extensive
research work includes studying treatment of breast cancer patients, therapy treatment
options, physician communication with patients, the utilization of screening tests–
where she developed strategies practitioners can use to improve the utilization of
screening mammography by their patients.
5. A grant to Dr. Judy Tjoe M.D. – F.A.C.S> Medical Director at Aurora Healthcare
Comprehensive Breast Care Center to study the predictive value of certain cell membrane
bio-markers in ADH/ALH to hallmark the onset of breast cancer. Learn More
6. A substantial grant to Dr. Carol Willliams, PhD, a molecular biologist at the
Medical College of Wisconsin to study proteins that may affect cancer cell migration.
Regulation of small GTPases by the unique protein known as SmgGDS. Recently discovered
there are two functionally distinct splice variants of SmgGDS, which we named SmgGDS-607
and SmgGDS-558, based on the number of amino acids in each protein. Learn More
