Love For Papa and Pépère
Thank you for visiting our team page.
Many of you reading this know our story...my dad, a little over three years ago died of brain cancer. He battled for over twenty years, had multiple surgeries, went through rounds of radiatian, gamma knife, Novocure and various chemos. He always believed family, friends, and faith were keeping him alive, and we believe him. He was everything we could want in a Dad and Papa. Very simply put, to us, our dad, was, is, and always will be a hero.
Unfortunately, our story doesn't end there. In June my father-in-law also passed away from gliobloastoma. Sadly this disease has robbed us of too much.
Please come join us as we battle brain cancer once more and remember those that were taken too early.
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure New York on October 19, 2019. 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 from the Head for the Cure 5K - New York event benefit Lenox Hill Neurosurgery and the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative (BTTC).
Each year, an estimated 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 joining our team, Love our Papa and Pepere or by making a donation today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
