Those who know me, know just how much this event means to both my family and I. It is always hard to write this because I have to pause when I think about how blessed I have been. Since the car accident in December 2007, where I learned I had a brain tumor, there are so many that continue to contribute and/or join us each year. If I could wrap up the overwhelming feeling of gratitude that has provided and give it to everyone as a gift, believe me....I would. It is because of the continued research and advances made possible that I am a success story. As long as I am healthy and able, I will continue to raise funds for this. Having gone through 7 Neurosurgeons before I found one who had a comfortable amount of knowledge and experience with this rare tumor was a challenge. But, that is why I will continue to raise funds.
The 2nd time around surgery was in half the time, recovery was faster allowing me to return to my previously activities, work and being with my family. I am not sure why God still has me on this earth. However, I am without words of the continued dedication to help me raise funds for it. If you are able to make a contribution, please note that no contirbution is too small. Please know how much I am TRULY appreciative of it.
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show my support, 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.
