Bill Hughes has been a volunteer participating in the Breakthrough Your Way program since 2015. Bill began hosting the North Mississippi Kilt Walk and Fun Run after his wife Misty was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2014.
Misty has always loved kilts and the Scottish culture. Bill thought it would be a unique way to have some fun and spread awareness for the brain tumor cause. He wants his community to know that there are individuals struggling day-to-day with this diagnosis.
Bill says the best part of hosting an event is being able to network with other brain tumor survivors who understand the struggle. “We have made some friends that are going through the same experience that Misty is going through. It's good to have people that understand the struggle.”
