Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!

Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Detroit  at Oakland Unvirsity on October 4th. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

As you know, Shaun was diagnosed with a Grade III Anaplastic Oligodendroglimoa in October 2016. We are participating in this race as donations go directly to the Henry Ford Hermelin Brain Tumor Center where we are undergoing our treatments. The other part of donations go towards the Brain Tumor Trials Collabortive Network for research and clinical trials - something we may need down the road in our fight against cancer. Please consider joining our team by either walking with us on September 22nd or through a virtaul donation (you'll even get free gear).

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. 

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.

Please consider making a donation today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
