Each day 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. This is why on Saturday, February 9, 2013 I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association?s Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk in Tampa, FL. Each year, the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk provides critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
Brain tumors have had a direct influence within my Bondanza family. Within a four year timeframe, my mom and two brothers (ages 45 & 50) were all diagnosed and succumb to the same Glioblastoma Multiforme brain tumor (GBM). This loss has not only affected me and the children left, but has altered our family forever.
Currently our family is enrolled in a Global Geno-type clinical research study for multi tumor families sponsored with the ABTA through MD Anderson, Houston and Dr. Melissa Bondi. The intent of the study is in hopes of finding a common dominator and finding a cure to stop this horrid disease.
I am participating and fundraising to maintain and strengthen the critical resources that make such a profound difference in the lives of brain tumor patients and their families.
You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
