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 Seattle on June 26, 2021. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
On April 23, 2019, Adrianne was admitted to the hospital after an MRI found a mass in her brain. The tumor was removed on June 4, 2019, and pathology came back indicating it was GBM. Since then, Amazing Adrianne has continued fighting:
- through a post-surgical infection requiring a second surgery to clear the infection and remove the "man-hole cover" through which the tumor had been removed
- through weeks of having to wear a helmet to protect her brain while her body healed post-infection
- through a third surgery to install a new skull plate
She completed initial rounds of chemotherapy + radiation treatment, maintenance chemotherapy, and as well as over half a year of Optune TTF therapy.
Adrianne has continued to fight, and we can fight with her. Please help donate to this page, as funds will go towards 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. Some of these funds will go towards Adrianne's amazing care team.
