Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Our Team Rose is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure St. Louis on June 23rd, 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.
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!
We would like everyone to participate in our team wearing our "Team Rose" shirts! I am wearing this shirt in the photo on this page and would love to be able to set our team apart from the others. If you do not already have a shirt you can contact Susan Wilde on our Team Rose facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/2185676795040301/) or sending me a message through facebook as well.
