Welcome to My Personal Page (It's like the team page, but personal...)
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
This snuck up on me this year - as we're all experiencing, there are so many things at home, as well as the state, country and world, going on vying for attention and time; a lot of it pretty stinking awful. Then suddenly it's June and then suddenly it's the WEEK of the race and I'm making my annual plea to JOIN our team or DONATE to brain cancer research.
I wrestled with how to ask for donations and team members this year. Between Covid 19 and BLM, a lot of our "normal" life occurrences are in limbo and nobody knows when we'll get to our "new" normal - and a lot of those affected need support.
Then I realized how similar all of the current events are to the diagnosis of a brain tumor - the survivors, family, and friends suddenly caught unawares by catastrophic changes they can't control, looking for answers and wayw to cope and searching for our own "new" normal.
It's the same thing for all of us, in all of the upheaval - we want to find a better way. Whether it's for a new society debilitating illness, an awakening to systems that need reformed, or an old illness that infiltrates the minds of our loved ones, we need to provide funds and support to make changes.
So, even in this time of universal need, please JOIN OUR TEAM (virtually) or DONATE to brain cancer research. Every team member raises awareness and every dollar helps to find another possible weapon in our fight against brain cancer.
With love and gratitude,
Sherri - team captain of MIND YOUR HEAD
Addtional, but less personal info:
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. A portion of the funds from our race are given directly to the Univeristy of Washington and SCCA Brain Tumor departments - Johnmichael's care teams!
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.
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.
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!
