At four months old, Lucy was diagnosed with an optic glioma brain tumor. The tumor has caused Lucy to lose her vision but has not stopped her from blossoming into a bright, energetic and hilarious 2 years old. She inspires us daily and we hope her story can inspire you to support this cause.
There are almost 700,000 people in the United States living with a brain tumor. Approximately 28,000 of those are children under the age of 19. There are 120 different types of brain tumors, making universally effective treatments difficult. Despite these staggering numbers, research for brain tumors is severely under-funded. Your support is instrumental in providing funding for the much needed research that will hopefully result in a cure for all types of brain tumors.
Team Super Lucy is excited to be back for the 2018 ABTA Chicago BT5K. We hope you can join us as we run, walk, cheer and raise money for brain tumor research!
