Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Bike Ride KC. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. I have worked with Head For the Cure on their running events for more than a decade and am excited to be able to participate in their bike event for the first time and hopefully raise a few dollars for their organization.
Each year, over 80,000 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. I am riding In this year’s bike event in honor of a high school classmate of mine, Matt Seahorn, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor about a year ago and who passed away earlier this year. Matt was a good man, a good dad and a good husband and his passing has left a big hole in the lives of many people. He was lost too quickly and way too soon.
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.
Please consider making a donation today to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step! If you are so inclined, sign up and ride with me on Saturday, June 6th in Kansas City and help raise even more funds for this great organization.
