As you all know, my daughter, Kristi, was an inspiration to me, family, friends, and colleagues as she lived with a brain tumor for almost ten years. She lived her life with hope and dignity.
It is extremely important to continue research to determine causes and then cures for primary brain tumors. For that reason, I will continue to honor her memory as long as I am physically able to travel to Chicago and to "walk" alone or with her team as well as brain tumor survivors and families of those who lost their battle to a brain tumor. This year I am fortunate to have my son Scott and grandson James walk with me in memory of Kristi.
May the way in which Kristi lived her life be an inspiration to you and especially to brain tumor survivors and their loved ones.

Thank you in advance for your support of my efforts on behalf of brain tumor patients, their families and the researchers pursuing the breakthroughs.
Remember to live each day to the fullest, to tell someone each day that you love him or her, and to always ask "What Next" and not "Why Me"?
About the American Brain Tumor Association
