Thank you for visiting my team page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure Chicago 5K on Sunday, September15, 2019 held at Diversey Harbor. Race begins at 8:00 a.m.
Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of local and national medical centers with the expertise and desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors. Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families and caregivers. The organization is dedicated to raising funds for much needed brain cancer research as well as providing emotional and educational support for patients and their families at local hospitals' brain cancer treatment centers.
Each year, over 200,000 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 to treat and cure these tumors.
Please consider making a donation, or run or walk with me, to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step.
Let's make this our greatest year ever!
My best to all, Staunton, Annie, Staunton and Kyle
