Wedge's Head for the Cure fundraising page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
Those of you who know me well know that I am passionate about my job, in which I follow oncology drug development. You also know that Adrianne is a long time friend, who has been part of my village since I was a teenager. So it was a no-brainer (sorry) that I should feel strongly about supporting this cause. We can't go through Ady's treatments for her, but we can still run alongside.
I am also running for Stephen Diffendale, the father of my friend Charlotte. He sadly passed away from GBM last year, but his spirit runs on in his daughter, and so I run for him as well.
And so, I am excited to head up to Seattle to participate in Head for the Cure on June 27, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
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!
