Thank you for visiting our team page, Team YOLO!
Our team is joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure St. Louis on June 26, 2022. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
Yolanda was taken from us on March 11, 2019, after bravely battling Glioblastoma for ten years. Her life was far too short, yet she lived it with such joy and enthusiasm. Although she had a relentless form of brain cancer, cancer never had her. Yolanda made this world a better place and our lives will never be the same without her. She will never be forgotten, she will live on in our hearts forever.
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 79,000 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.
GO TEAM YOLO!
