2019 Omaha


As many of you are aware, I was diagnosed with brain cancer in September 2017. Specifically, it is Glioblastoma, grade 4. This is the same type that John McCain had. It is rare, fast growing, and not curable. Over the past 21 months I have undergone brain surgery, chemo, radiation and continue to have MRI's every other month.

I am here to say that I am not ready to give in or give up!  I am blessed to be here with my loving family and friends.

My Oncologist, Dr. Nicole Shonka, gave me a flyer about this race. A portion of the funds go back to the Fred and Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, The Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, and Leap for a Cure.

I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Omaha on Sunday, July 21st, 2019. My personal team is called Brainiacs. You can participate by walking/running, be a virtural participant, or simply donate.  Save $5.00 by using using promotion code "JOINMYTEAM".

Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Please consider joining my team (Brainiacs) by joining the walk,or making a donation today to help me reach my goal, and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!

Thank you for helping!
