Welcome to Kevin's Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my personal page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal of $100.00!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure 5K SEATTLE on June 27, 2020. This race has moved to a virtual event so I will be doing it at home. I had been hoping to race this in person but maybe next year. 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, which we are too familiar with. 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. This has been on my mind and heart more this year. Especially during this month as May is Brain Cancer Awareness Month. I have been wearing gray everyday this month.
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. Seattle's funds support Alvord Brain Tumor Center at UW Medical Center.
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! Of course please feel no obligation or pressure to donate. This was something I was going to do before seeing that you can fundraise. Chad and I are both signed up for this race.
Thank you and love to you all.
