team therese 2018
As many of you know, my sister was diagnosed with a brain tumor around Halloween last year. The day before Thanksgiving, doctors removed most of it, but found 4 smaller tumors. We had an incredible Christmas Eve together that I'll keep in my heart forever. But on Christmas day, Mimi lost the battle with GBM.
My brother in law, Tony, has organized Team Therese to participate in Head for the Cure 5K Run/Walk so we collectively continue Therese's fight against cancer. This non-profit 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!
