Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. It was hard to grasp that number when I first saw it, but I have actually known quite a few people in my lifetime that have lost love ones to this horrible affliction. The one thing that really stood out from all their stories, was fact there were so few options and such a low rate of survival. When deciding on a charity to run for my first marathon, this one spoke to me because of all the personal stories I have heard. I wanted to run for a charity where I could actually make a difference.
To show my support and honor these loved ones, I will be participating in the American Brain Tumor Association’s Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
