2020 Salt Lake City

Team Willow

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 Salt Lake City on August 22nd, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. 

Willow was diagnosed with a brain tumor in late 2018 at the age of 6. She underwent a six hour laser ablation and biopsy and was diagnosed  with a Myxoid Glioneuronal tumor of the septum pellucidum and lateral ventricle. 

Even though this type of tumor is newly discovered and not much is known about it, we felt very blessed that her tumor is low grade and that is was able to be removed through the ablation. 

Unfortunately She has had some lasting damage to that area which has impacted her personality and learning but she is definitely a fighter! 

She is currently getting scans every six months and her tumor is stable!

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.

Thanks for joining team Willow!

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.

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!
