Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. On February 23, 2008, my hero, my dad lost his fight with GBM. That day I remember feeling like I couldn't breathe, and that the one person who was always there for me, was gone, and how would I ever go on. I was not prepared, I was no way ready. Unfortunately I was not given a choice, GBM doesn't ask if you are ready, it doesn't care. GBM is a cruel relentless disease. It does not discriminate, it effects all people, all walks of life, young, old, men, women. I want to do something to find a cure for this awful disease so others hopefully will not go thru what my family went thru.
I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk. Money raised by the BT5K will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care. Many times the warning signs are subtle and could be missed, like my dad's, a headache that wouldn't seem to go away.
