Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. I contributed to this statistic on January 12th, 2017. After a very short waiting period I had brain surgery on January 24th to extract a large meningioma on the front right side of my brain.
I created Team JZ for the BT5K in 2017 and I loved it so much that I'm bringing it back for 2018. It's been a little over a year since my diagnosis and I've made it through surgery, radiation therapy, and whole bundle of other scans, tests, & appointments. My next big hurdle to clear will be having good scan this coming June.
I'm excited to show my support by 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.
