Walking in memory of my brother from another mother Dan and to raise awareness for Brain Cancer
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
As many of you already know last year we lost my brother in law Dan to Brain Cancer last year. Watching the disease progression from his diagnosis to his final week we got to spend togther at Disney was just heartbreaking. From the moment my sister Heather brought him around Dan and I were instant buds. His loss is felt by many people across the United States and Canada, as he was cherished by all who got to know him. I will be joining my sister Heather and Team IronDan to help raise awareness for Brain Cancer and Glioblastoma. This past year my sister, her mother in law, father in law and sisters participated in many 5ks, fundraisers and awareness events to try and help others suffering from this diagnosis. This cause is very near and dear to my heart as Dan was the Mario to my Luigi. Please join us if you can or share this post if you can!!

Each year, over 80,000 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!
