In January of 2015, a co-worker of mine, Jeremy Jeffers, who was one of our Safety Managers, was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma brain tumor. Within just a couple months, he passed away leaving behind a wife and two young children. A seemingly healthy person's life was flipped upside down in a manner of hours. This tragedy opened my eyes to brain tumors and cancers and how under-recognized this field was to the general public as compared to many other forms of illness that are much more curable and/or treatable. In rememberance of Jeremy and to others who have either suffered a similar fate (Joe Biden's son) or those who may soon experience the same fate (John McCain), I ask for your generous support in joining me and other Structural Preservation Systems coworkers and their family or friends in either running/walking on 4/22 in Chicago or by donating to this team.
Below are some more details:
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.
You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
