Running to Raise Money for Brain Cancer Research
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Seattle on June 29, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
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.
As many of you know, my mom discovered that she has brain cancer in September 2018. She and my dad have spent the past 9 months seeking answers and treatment around the country to try and reduce/eliminate her inoperable tumor. Unfortunately, none of the treatments she has tried have worked, and doctors are stumped as to what to do next. So for now, the doctor's have recommended that we watch and wait, in hopes that they can learn more about her rare cancer. However, we are SO thankful that her tumor is slow growing, which means hopefully my mom can continue living her life for many many years to come. But we are praying and believing for ultimate healing, and for there to be new treatments developed that will get rid of this cancer.
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!
