On January 12, 2017, my mom was diagnosed with glioblastoma, a primary, highly malignant, brain tumor, for which there is no cure. My mom has gone through surgery and radiation and continues to undergo chemo once a month. Thankfully, she is kicking its ass and has shown improvement with each subsequent MRI :)
My mom is not the only person in this situation. There are currently 700,000 people living in the United States with a brain tumor, and 500 new people are diagnosed each day.
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.
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.
Thank you in advance for your support of my efforts on behalf of my mom and all of the other brain tumor patients, their families, and the researchers pursuing the breakthroughs.
