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 Metro KC on Sunday, August 30th. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.

Team ekSTRONG is a group of family and friends who are walking in honor of Sandra Ekstrom. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Glioblastoma in March of 2016, and her battle came to an end on December 10, 2016. This race is in honor of a woman who fought hard against an ugly disease. Team ekSTRONG will always remember a beautiful, strong woman who was loved by many. 

About Head for the Cure:

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.

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!
