Thank you for visiting the Drage Strong team page!
I speak on behalf of many when I say that John and his family are so dear to us! John's love for Jesus has impacted thousands upon thousands of lives at Mizzou, across the country, and around the world. A friend of John's said it best, "He has been a pillar in the faith of so many people and his walk on this journey will continue to draw people to Jesus."
As we stand with the Drage family in prayer, we would also like to come together to show our support for John and his family. You are invited to join the Drage Strong team on Saturday, April 6, 2019 for the Head for the Cure Mid Missouri 5K Walk/Run.
From Head for the Cure:
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!
