Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting Jane's page (part of Team Peachy) and for your support for Team Peachy!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the VIRTUAL Head for the Cure Des Moines 5K on July 26,2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
By registering to be a participant for Team Peachy, you can support brain tumor research and receive a Head for the Cure t shirt without traveling to Des Moines or running/walking this year.
If you do not care to join the team and receive a t-shirt but want to contribute, that option is available as a donation to Head for the Cure.
While many events have been canceled this year, the need for better treatments continues to save precious lives.
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 Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
