2019 marks 3 years now that my hero and first love was called home due to the treatment effects of a Brain Tumor. Am I angry, mad and sad? Sure, but he also went over the time frame they gave him, and I know his experience gave the Dr's the information needed to help other families who are suffering.
This has been the only cause I fundraise for and now that I have an amazing guardian angel watching over me, i will continue to fight for this cause. No one should ever go through what we went through as a family watching my once strong daddy suffer day by day.
I continue to walk in support of my bestie Tammy, who in 2012 had a Pituitary tumor removed.
I also walk in memory of Rick Caton, (Scotts father) aka Mr. Popcorn, who lost his fight in 2001. Jim Wilson (Michelles dad 2009) and Miss Boni Jean 2017.
This marks the 6th year that ABTA is here - they first came to Columbus June 2014, and I'm proud to say I've been to every one and will continue to support this cause. Join my Krew!!!!
I'D ALSO LIKE TO ADD THAT ABTA USES 75% OF FUNDS RAISED FOR RESEARCH AND EDUCATION OF BRAIN TUMORS. MOST NON-PROFITS USE THE MONEY FOR OVERHEAD. THIS IS ANOTHER REASON I'M SO PROUD TO STAND BEHIND THIS ORGANIZATION!!
Each day 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. This is why I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association's Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk. Each year, the Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K Run & Walk provides critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
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.
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.
