Each day 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. This is why on Saturday, May 11, 2019 I will once again be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk in Kensington Metropark, MI. 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. My only daughter, Emily - a beautiful, talented, loving, and giving young woman - died at age 28 of glioblastoma, the deadliest form of brain cancer.
You can support me in my efforts to eradicate brain cancer by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
Click on the orange Donate button on the top right of this page to donate safely and securely online.
Your donation not only supports brain tumor patients and their families but it also supports the breakthrough research to improve, extend and ultimately save lives.
If you prefer to mail your donation, download the donation sheet under the donor info tab or you can send me your check made out to "ABTA" and I will see that it gets submitted. (For quick reference, my address is 3726 Chilton Drive, Saginaw, MI 48603.) Make sure you write "Team Emily" in the memo section.
And remember, your donation is tax-deductible! You can learn more about the American Brain Tumor Association at www.abta.org.
Thank you in advance for your support of my efforts on behalf of brain tumor patients, their families and the researchers pursuing the breakthroughs.
