What is Ironcology?!
Ironcology was created in May of 2014 as a platform for one physician, named Jonathan Feddock, to combine his talents as a long distance triathlete, with his passion for providing the best cancer care possible to patients in the state of Kentucky. Dr. Feddock is a radiation oncologist at the University of Kentucky, where he specializes in the treatment of Breast, Gynecologic, and Pediatric cancers. His goal was to raise $200,000 to be applied as the downpayment for a new radiation implant procedure suite at the Markey Cancer Center. That single day’s effort successfully raised over $54,000. With continued persistence through social media and the generation of regional awareness, additional donations have now helped Ironcology to raise nearly $350,000 since its inception in June of 2014.
