Head for the Cure 5K - Phoenix

Team TIm

Thank you for visiting our team page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!

Tim had a seizure while at work on February 11, 2021 and was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma. He has had 2 surgeries so far and another surgery on September 15th to remove parts of the tumor. He has gone through chemo and radiation and is currently in a clinical trial at the Ivy Brain Tumor Center. The clinical trial is for a chemotherapy drug that he takes every day. We are extremely hopeful for Tim's future and we feel like he has not finished his mission here on earth, he still has much more to do! We are so grateful for all of the love and support we have received from everyone, words cannot fully express how much it has changed our lives. We appreciate having so many wonderful people in our lives. Let's get together and celebrate TEAM TIM!

Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in the Head for the Cure 5K - Phoenix on Saturday, October 30th, 2021. 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!
