I am also incredbily thankful that a year after his diagnosis in July 2017, my father-in-law is still here and continuing his fight against glioblastoma, a malignant form of brain tumor. He is continuing to undergo treatment and is feeling well. As he has explored and tried different treatment options, our family has learned more about the innovative medicine that many are working on to address glioblastoma. Thanks to the medical care that is now available, I believe he will be able to meet his granddaughter. Development and implementation of new treatments of course requires funding, and raising money for this walk moves those efforts forward.
So, with much gratitude and hope, 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 this effort 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. And your donation is tax-deductible. You can learn more about the American Brain Tumor Association at www.abta.org. Thanks for your support of my efforts on behalf of brain tumor patients, their families, and the researchers pursuing the breakthroughs!
