Welcome to My Personal Page
Thank you for visiting my head for the cure page and helping me to reach my fundraising goal!
On September 18th 2019 my incredible mother had a seizure while solo hiking Piestewa peak, and much to her distain, had to be rescued off the mountain by some amazing local firefighters. She was admitted to the hospital and two days later we got the news that nobody wants to get... she was diagnosed with stage 4 Glioblastoma. It’s an aggressive form of brain cancer that not many people know about. At that point she was basically stamped with an expiration date! but being the strong minded and extremely healthy person that she is, she has refused to be a statistic. Now almost one year later we are about to celebrate a year since she was diagnosed! Without organizations like head for a cure this one year celebration may not have been a reality. So please give what you can and spread the word! Love you mom!
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Phoenix on November 7th, 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!
