Lance Mackey is the only 4-time Iditarod and 4-time Yukon Quest winner.  He did this after battling and beating cancer years ago.  He's undergoing treatments where the medical bills have used up all his winnings are are now turning into a mountain of debt. 

He's undergoing medical treatments that are a direct result of the radiation treatment that he had to have to beat the cancer. The radiation has been eroding his jaw all these years and he has finally had to submit to having his teeth removed and dentures implanted. Because of his medical history he has to have hyperbaric treatments to make this procedure possible. As is customary of Lance, he has just met all his obstacles head on and not made a big deal out of them. He isn't seeking help but we want to help him. If you feel moved to do so, thank you! Please feel free to share with others that may be interested.

Lance can't race and win more money while he's recovering, he's not even asking for help.  This fundraiser is being set up by someone who cares to help a fellow musher stay on the runners.  Please help Lance get better again so his kennel can keep going through the efforts of his handlers, family and friends.

If you don't like using online payment, gifts to Lance can be sent to the following address:
