Thank you for visiting our personal page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
In April of 2020, our family received the difficult news of my father being diagnosed with a glioblastoma. While over in Ecuador, he received the best possible treatment offered at a small, private clinic. Once he stabilized and received two surgeries, we managed to bring my dad back over to the United States where he originally lived, and seek for a cure. It was a long, difficult year and a half but his entire family remained at his side for all of it.
After fighting the good fight, and enduring the longest battle of his life, on June 4th, 2021, my father, Jose Antonio Martinez, earned his wings and is now soaring among the angels.
Our family is walking in remembrance & celebration of his life.
We are joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure - New Jersey on June 11, 2022. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
Each year, over 84,000 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 us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
