Grey Angels - In Memory of TMB
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 St. Louis on June 26th, 2022. 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 84,000 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!
We are walking in honor of my mother, Theresa Bommarito, who lost her fight just ten months after her diagnosis. She had hope and fought bravely.
Life doesn't feel the same without her and we want to join this wonderful organization to help others defeat this unfair disease. My mom touched so many lives while she was on this earth and we want her legacy to live on. Your contribution to help patients and families will help us achieve that goal.
"Grey Angels" is more than just a team name. It signifies my mom's love and connection to Pensacola Beach, home of the US Navy Blue Angels. Grey representing the color that has become synonymous with brain cancer. Angel, a word that will forever describe my mother.
From my family to yours...words cannot express our deepest thanks for your generosity and kindness.
