Carrying the fire and hope for a cure: Magic of Believing
Thank you for visiting my American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) Team Breakthrough fundraising page. I've committed to participating in Bank of America Chicago Marathon again on October 13, 2019 and fundraising for this super fabulous organization. The money I raise will help support cutting edge research and patient/family support programs. The ABTA is close to my heart and helped me when I was diagnosed with a Brain Tumor in 2013. I have seen personally how much this organization helps people and have met so many amazing people at the charity race whom have shared their stories of why they support the ABTA. I must say, each and everyone touches my heart and makes me more determined to do my best to help raise awareness and donations for the beautiful ABTA.
I was diagnosed with an Anaplastic Astrocytoma Grade III Brain tumor in 2013. My life was going in a different direction before this diagnosis. I was ready to start my NP program at UMass Lowell and further my career to get advanced knowledge to further help people, but life happens and I had to deal with this little barrier in the road. :) I was so fortunate to be blessed with the beautifully fabulous Mass General surgeon Dr. Curry on October 21, 2013 and he was able to do a total resection of the tumor. I am blessed that the surgery went so well and now this is my time to pay it forward! I am so very grateful that I can be a part of Team Breakthrough another year. This is a big year for me in that it will be my sixth year running with Team Breakthrough for the ABTA. Once again, I will run with love, strength and hope in my heart that someday soon there will be a cure and will run for all those who have lost their fight, but live on in our hearts.
Please consider donating to the ABTA and know your donation will make a difference.
Let's Never Lose Hope and Carry the Strength, Love and hope for a cure together with every dollar raised and by bringing awareness to everyone about the prevalence of Brain Tumors and how early diagnosis and treatment is key to a postivite outcome. Please visit the ABTA website for details on signs/symptoms of Brain Tumors and how ABTA is making a difference in the world.
Any donation and/or happy well wishes for a super fabulous run is so appreciated!!!
