Amy's Army of Angels
This is our 10th year walking in honor of Amy!!! Let’s get this party started!!
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Metro KC on August 25, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. My cousin, Amy Roberts, continues to fight this battle every day. She was diagnosed 10 1/2 years ago with stage 4 glioblastoma and is still going strong! To watch Amy fight through surgery and treatment in the beginning was heartbreaking but to see her living her dreams today is a blessing. She is the most amazing mom, cousin, wife and friend anyone could ask for. Please help my family support everyone who is battling with this same disease and find a cure for brain cancer! We are setting our fundraising goals high this year....$5000!!! We can do this!
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 200,000 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 or join us by participating in the walk/run to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
