Thank you for visiting my team’s page. In February of this year, I had my 5th brain surgery to remove a recurrent tumor. The type of tumor I have is extremely rare and new research is our best hope. This 5k will raise awareness for the need for brain cancer research and directly benefits the Alvord Brain Tumor Center at UW which is where one of my teams of doctors is.
We we would love to have you join us to walk or run in the 5k in Redmond at Marymoor Park this year.
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Redmond, WA on June 29, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
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.
Each year, over 79,000 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.
