I have decided to run my first marathon with Team Breakthrough. My dad lost his battle to brain cancer December 28th 2007. Through the pain of his loss, I developed a passion for running. Running helped me clear my mind, and acted like self therapy in the hardest times of my life. It has always been a goal of mine to complete a full marathon, and running for a charity like Team Breakthrough in support for my dad would be even more valuable to me.
The mission of the ABTA is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving, extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis. An estimated 700,000 Americans are living with a brain tumor and the average survival rate for all malignant brain tumor patients is only 34.7% 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.
You can support me in my efforts by making a donation to the American Brain Tumor Association.
