Three years ago, Fred J. Gaggioli, Jr. my wonderful, loving husband of 26 years was diagnosed with a very aggresive brain tumor. He kept up an extremely postive attitude and made the most of the next 2 years of his life. Two years that were made possible with three craniotomies from very skilled neurosurgeons, radiation treatment, chemotherapy and numerous trials. He was always eager to help research by submitting to extra blood tests, answering questionaires, donating his removed brain tissue, etc. It seems the least I can do to honor his wish to help in the fight is to walk to continue what he started
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.
