My mom was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme (the most common, malignant, deadly brain tumor) in May of 2013. She battled her cancer and underwent 3 brain surgeries, received chemotherapy, brain radiation and participated in experimental clinical trials in the hope of staving off this aggressive disease. Unfortunately, she died from her cancer on October 16, 2015. Since her diagnosis, we have participated in this walk to aid in raising funds for experiemental trials and to support familes who have a loved one with brain cancer. This is the third year we do this walk without mom. It is going to be hard. Everyday without her is hard. But we continue on and conitnue with this walk and attempting to raise money for brain cancer research because we know the struggle too well. We know how devastating this diagnosis is and how few treatment options exist. We know how dedicated she was to fight and to change others treatment options by participating in experiemental trials. We know that she would want us to continue living and continue seeing the bright side of life. We know she lives on in all of us. So this year, we continue with the walk to give hope to others and to help all of us continue to heal.
We know there are a lot of great causes to donate to-this one obviously is close to our hearts and we hope that you will consider donating to it in honor of our mother-an angel while she was on earth, now looking down on all of us. Donations are tax deductible. #caringlikesharon
