Welcome to My Personal Page
As many of you know, I was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) in April of 2019. My tumor was resected and I am finishing up the Standard of Care protocol. I am also wearing Optune to help continue fighting. As part of my healing, I am trying to have as healthy a body as possible and after walking for sometime, I decided to pick up running! So I will run my first 5K in years on June 27, 2020 in Seattle. Ok Redmond, WA, but the greater Seattle area. :)
Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Some of the proceeds from this event will directly benefit my cancer center - Alvord Brain Tumor Center.
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!
