Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Abbey and I decided that in these days of great uncertainty, we needed to do something POSITIVE. As you know, Dr. Martin Block, my husband and Abbey's dad, passed away 7 years ago this month from a Glioblastoma. Brain cancer research will always be our #1 priority when it comes to raising money for others. We need to bring attention and funding to this disease, so that not only new treatments BUT also a CURE is found. We miss Marty every day, and this is one way we can keep his memory alive and HONOR him. If we can't have him here with us, we CAN do our best to help others so that they do not have to travel the same road Marty and our family went down.
Please consider joining our virtual team or donating to help us reach our goal. We thank you in advance for anything you can do to help us to help others.
#TeamMarty is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Phoenix on November 7th, 2020. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for 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 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!
