Welcome to My Personal Page!
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating as a virtual member of Team Peachy in Head for the Cure Des Moines on May 19th, 2019. Team Peachy is dedicated to raising money to fight brain cancer in honor of Steve Murphy, my uncle, who passed away from brain cancer in July 2018. The name of our team comes from one of Uncle Steve's favorite expressions for when things were going well:
"How are you, my brother?"
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.
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! I'll be running the race on May 19th from South Bend, IN, where I'll get to see my little brother graduate from college!
