2019 Chicago

Knock Out Glioblastoma

Join the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Chicago on September 15th, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.

I am creating this team to fight for my dad, who was recently diagnosed with a Grade 4 Glioblastoma. He is the strongest person I know and I know he’ll do everything he can to KNOCK OUT Glioblastoma.  He just started treatment to kick this cancer's butt.

It is crazy to me that a cancer like this that comes out of no where and impacts so many lives does not have a cure, especially with today's medical advancements, so I hope that the money raised from this run can help find that cure, for my dad and everyone else plagued by this monster.  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.

Please consider joining my team for the race (you can walk or run) or making a donation today to help me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
