Welcome to the Glover Family Page
Thank you for visiting our family's page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
We are demonstrating our support for dad and mom by joining the fight against brain cancer and participating in Head for the Cure NC Triangle on September 7, 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. This past February, this number affected our family when dad was diagnosed with glioblastoma. The surgery that followed the diagnosis removed a 7x5 cm tumor from the right side of his brain. He is now undergoing chemotherapy and a part of a new trial of immunotherapy. 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 joining us at this event or making a donation to help us reach our goal, honor dad, and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
