Deb's Grand Cru
Welcome runners and walkers ! Thank you for participating in the 2019 Head for the Cure !
I have received so much personal support in my Glioblastoa battle that I want to do something to help the greater good. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
Each year, over 79,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. Of these, 13,000 are Glioblastoma diagnoses. The 5-year survival rate for Glioblastoma patients is only 5%. On account of the relatively small patient population compared to other cancers and coupled with the short life expectancy for the patients, biopharmaceutical companies are reluctant to invest significant dollars towards research. To date, there are only 4 drugs used to battle Glioblastoma.
Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.
Head for the Cure works to inspire hope and celebration for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters. Please join us.
I look forward to seeing you on October 5th for a FUN day at Edgewater Park!
(All my team members will receive an additional "Deb's Grand Cru" t-shirt from me. We will stand out in style!)
