I've raise $120!
I made a breakthrough for the 120 types of brain tumors.
Mr. Anthony Quintana
On November 14, 2010, I went to the local urgent for migraine-like headaches that I had for several days. I was diagnosed with a sinus infection and was given a shot of antibiotics. I returned home with my girlfriend and laid down on the couch.
What happened next? Seizures. Rebecca called the paramedics and went with me to the hospital. I was not conscious, so I do not remember this part, but aft the ER doctors did a CT scan and MRI of my brain, they showed me the mass in my left frontal lobe. So my journey began, I was later diagnosed with an oligodendroglioma and had brain surgery on December 14, 2010.
I am doing well now, I get MRIs every 3 months and remain on seizure medication. They are constantly evaluating my progress.
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.
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.
