Welcome to the Brave Like Meg team page!
My sister, Meg Boyer, fought brain cancer valiantly and tirelessly. After three years of fighting, she passed away on Christmas Day. She would be beyond happy to know that donations were made in her name that would help other patients with brain tumors. She was convinced that there would one day be a cure.
Meg was fierce, thoughtful, and generous. She influenced people in all areas of her life - family, friends, co-workers. She "made" me run my one-and-only 10K about a million years ago when we lived in Boise together, so it's fitting that this fundraiser is a run. Please join me if you can in Omaha on July 23 for a 5K, or please consider donating to Head for the Cure in Meg's honor.
Thank you for all of your continued support as we remember what a badass Meg was.
Here is some information about Head for the Cure:
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.
