Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure New York City at Icahn Stadium, Randall's Island, New York City on October 19th, 2019. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. In 2018, Voices Against Brain Cancer joined forces with Head For the Cure.
Allie, Michael and I, along with many of you, have participated in several walk/runs sponsored by Voices Against Brain Cancer. It has been seven years since Al succumbed to brain cancer and we are participating this year to honor his memory and raise funds to help fund brain cancer research. We hope you will join us on October 19th and donate to support this important cause. If you are unable to join us, you can still make a donation. Please remember all donations are appreciated and no donation is too small. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
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 honor Al's memory and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
