Thank you for visiting our Team Barsness page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Loren Barsness, beloved husband, father, grandpa, brother, and friend, passed away on November 10, 2018, from glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer. We miss him every day, but our hope is through raising money for brain cancer research, we can help find a cure for the disease that took him from us. We welcome everyone who wants to run or walk with us to honor Loren to join us at the Head for the Cure SEATTLE on JUNE 29, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. You can also give towards our team fundraising goal.
Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight.
Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.
Each year, over 79,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.
