Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Over the holiday season, my dad, Brad Heider, was diagnosed with grade IV Glioblastoma. After surviving brain surgery, a stroke, radiation and chemotherapy, he passed away surrounded by family on August 15, 2020. I would love to help other families that are being affected by this horrible illness and hopefully one day see a cure. If you can't donate, even sharing a link to this page would be very appreciated!
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure San Francisco on September 13, 2020. 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.
Each year, over 80,000 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 help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
