Thank you for visiting the TEAM MOMOCITA page and helping us reach our fundraising goal!
TEAM MOMOCITA is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Virtual 5K- San Antonio on September 26, 2020. (This year it will be a virtual 5K due to precautions for the global health pandemic COVID-19.) Head for the Cure (HFTC) is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Last year, TEAM MOMOCITA raised a little over $1600 for HFTC!
This will be the second year TEAM MOMOCITA has joined the Head for the Cure 5K. Last year TEAM MOMOCITA was formed by me, Monika Nixon (aka Momo). I formed this team because I want to ensure funds are being raised for brain cancer research. I, myself, was diagnosed with a brain tumor approximately the size of a golf ball on August 23, 2018. I had brain surgery on October 2, 2018 and biopsy results confirmed the brain tumor was brain cancer, an oligodendroglioma Grade 2 (with genetic testing). Oligodendrogliomas typically have "favorable" mutations which meant this type of brain cancer is known to respond well to radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Brain surgery, 30 rounds of radiation therapy, 12 cycles of oral chemotherapy and with God guiding my journey... I have kicked this brain cancer's butt and I am currently considered in remission due to clear scans! I look forward the enjoying the rest of my life with my family. I know a large part of that being possible is due to advancements in treatment that came from brain cancer research and of course, faith in God.
Please consider making a donation or join the team today to help TEAM MOMOCITA reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
