Welcome to Jeanne's Personal Page for Andy's Warriors
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
On April 11th my 35-year old nephew, Andy Forbes, was diagnosed with an extremely aggressive and treatment-resistant form of brain cancer called Glioblastoma. He has a wife and 2-year old son. Andy's family and friends have formed the "Andy's Warriors" team and we are joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Detroit on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
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.
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! We want Andy, and everyone battling brain cancer, to know that NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE!
