Welcome to Roger's HFTC5K Page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
I am a FOUR-time survivor of an Ependymoma Brain Tumor and I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure - Central Texas 5K on Sunday, March 27th, 2022. My tumor reoccurred in early Feb 2021, I had surgery in Jun 2021, and am currently in a medical trial researching a new immunotherapy drug for rare brain cancers like mine. 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 join my team and walk with us or consider making a donation today to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
