Welcome to My Personal Page
Hey y'all! Thanks so much for stopping by my page. I'm joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Central Texas on March 31st, 2019.
The cause is especially close to a friend of mine's heart, and I've signed up for the race to support his efforts toward raising awareness and money to combat this deadly disease.
It's been 4 years since I ran the Austin half marathon, but I've dusted off my sneakers and am training for this 5K as if it were another half marathon—because that's how out of shape I've become since my last race!
Spur on my efforts and make a positive difference by donating to this cause! Thank you a ton for your support in advance—I need all that I can get. <3
Here's more background if you'd like to learn more about the race and the cause it supports:
Each year, over 79,000 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!
