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 Central Texas on March 29th, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
We are walking in memory of our dad, papa, husband, and friend Rusty Ranck. Rusty passed away September 27, 2019 after 17 years of a world class fight with cancer. Rusty loved his family and really lived his life. He enjoyed camping with his family, concerts with his woman, and good ‘ol cookouts with “Papa’s famous ribs”. He loved fast cars, loud music, and good looking women. Rusty loved to share stories of his life and teach his children and grandchildren. He was a father figure to many as he welcomed his children’s friends into his home as family. His smile, laugh, and “Rusty-isims” will be missed, but his memory will live on through the lives of those he influenced. Rusty was an amazing example of strength and hope, he was a proud participant in Head for the Cure events and was honored with a Keeping the Faith recognition one year. We honor and remember as we walk together this year.
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 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.
