Tammy and the Doctor (Paleologos)
First of all, thank you for your ongoing support to me and my family for continued good health.
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Chicago 5K walk/run on Sunday, September 15 at Diversey Harbor. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
For those of you "old" enough to remember, there was a series of Tammy movies that inspired the team name. I was named after the first Tammy movie, circa 1957. One was titled "Tammy and the Doctor". My accomplished oncologist, Nina Paleologos "The Doctor" aka Dr P. is dedicated to her patients and 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 by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers, including Advocate Health Care and Dr. P - with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.
I was fortunate to participate in a trial in 2014/2015.
Each year, over 200,000 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 and/or register for the walk today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
Grateful as always for your support,
