Welcome to My Personal Page
Friends & Family,
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Metro KC on August 24, 2014. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
As many of you know, my dear mother Marcia was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (stage 4 brain cancer) back in June 2012. She has had 3 craniotomies (brain surgeries) and has gone through chemotherapy and radiation treatments over the past 2 years. Due to the nature of how aggressiveand invasive this cancer is, Marcia has been placed on hospice care since June 2014.
I invite all of you that are interested to particpate in this 5K Run/Walk. Please follow the link below. You can either register as a runner or a walker. If you would like to register on my team, it is $29. Simply search for "Gray Matters"; the team captain is Kim Mobley (a friend and a co-worker who has overcome her fight with brain cancer and has had the same talented team of doctors as Mom). If you are unable to make this event but would like to make a donation, you are more than welcome to do so!
Watching a loved one battle this cancer is very difficult to endure! May our efforts be put towards the contribution of defeating this devistating disease!
This is for you Mom and others that Fight 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.
