Last April, my sister was diagnosed with a rare malignant brain tumor called meduloblastoma. With the help of her friends and family she just completed months of intensive chemotherapy and radiation. She was fortunate to have access to top-notch medical care at Northwestern University directed by her talented and dedicated neurosurgeon, neurooncologist, radiation oncologist and their caring staff. She is recovering and we all expect a cure. This would never have been possible without funding for brain tumor research.
Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. To show our support, our family 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. We would also love you to join us in the walk.
