Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. My sweet daughter Emily - as loving, kind, and generous a soul as anyone I know - contracted the deadliest form of brain cancer, glioblastoma, and died way too young at age 28. In her memory and to show my support for others with this disease, 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.
