Hello my name is Michael Kyle. My father is the reason that I have decided to join team breakthrough and raise money for brain cancer research. In June of 2016 he was diagnosed with a glioblastoma brain tumor which was devastating news to the entire family. With surgery, chemo, and radiation he was able give us 18 more months but unfortunately the tumor would not stop and my father passed away on Christmas night 2017.
This will be my first race to help raise money for brain tumor research but I plan on running many more to help those that may eventually become diagnosed with this horrible cancer.
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 Team Breakthrough Endurance program. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
