As you may know, my wife Deb died August 20th, 2017 from a glioblastoma brain tumor. As her primary caregiver, I saw a healthy, vibrantly positive and wonderful human being debilitate to hospice care over the span of 14 months (the avarage survival time from diagnosis). Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with one of the more than 120 different types of brain tumors. Many of the families of those individuals will go through what I did, and it will be the most horrifying and heartbreaking thing they have ever experienced.
To show my support for those who suffer and their families, I will be volunteering for and participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s BT5K Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk/Twin Cities. Money raised by the BT5K provides critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
I'm asking for your support by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
