Welcome to My Personal Page
On July 30, 2018, my family lost the most amazing person, Joseph Richard Minter, to a form of brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme. He was by far the greatest dad in the world to my sister and I, and an even better husband to our mom. He always knew just what to say, and would help anyone in need without question. He loved his family and worked hard every single day of his life. He was the strongest person I know and is greatly missed every single day. I will be participating in the Head for the Cure 5k in rememberance of my dad on June 23rd, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
GBM are fast growing malignant brain tumors that occur throughout the brain and spread rapidly. The average life span of someone with GBM is only about 15 months, and the 5 year survival rate is only 5%. 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!
