Jonathan Hwang's story

I'm reaching out to invite you to support or join me in supporting our inaugural charity Bike Ride on Saturday this October 23, 2021. I plan to participate as a virtual rider as co-captain of my Capital Georgetown-MedStar team.

As you well know, my personal motto is to treat each and every one of my patients as though he were a member of my own family and this has always been my explicit commitment to achieve the best possible outcome and life for his family. As a urologic surgeon specializing in prostate cancer for the last 20 years, working in close collaborations across Medstar-Georgetown-Lombardi cancer institutions, I have had a chance to meet tens of thousands of wonderful men from all walks of life who have become successful cancer survivors, and I know that the additional resources that come from a successful charitable ride like BellRinger have the potential to further enhance research into treatment and improve quality of life in those surviving genitourinary cancers.
At MedStar Washington Hospital Center I lead a team of gifted and highly experienced urologic oncologists who specialize in the integrated management of prostate, kidney and bladder cancer in close harmony with medical and radiation oncologists, some of whom are my team co-captains who all share the vision of delivering exceptional cancer programs based on the best research, open communication and thoughtful, compassionate care.
I'd love for you to join me and sign up to either Ride or Virtual Ride or make a contribution. Everyone has a connection to cancer in some way, which is why it's so important that you join us to address such a serious social problem that continues to affect millions of people in the time of a major pandemic which has only exacerbated health care access and delivery for cancer treatment and research.
