Welcome to my Personal Page!
Thanks for visiting my American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) BT5K 2017: Chicago page. I've committed to raising money for the ABTA Run/Walk on Sunday, April 23rd The money I raise will help support the research and patient/family support programs of ABTA. I'll be one of thousands participating that in this amazing and successful event.
This is my ninth year raising money for the ABTA. I have set a goal of $2,000. Any and all donations are greatly appreciated!
My brother, Lou, was diagnosed with a Grade 3 Oligodendroglioma brain tumor in October 2008. He underwent brain surgery followed by radiation and chemotherapy. I am happy to report that he has consistently received clean MRI reports and is doing extremely well. Unfortunately, my Aunt Nanette was diagnosed in September 2012 with a brain tumor and passed away on November 29, 2012.
I hope I can count on your support. You can make a donation to my fundraising campaign here by clicking on the button. If you prefer to write a check, just contact me. Thank you.
