*Check back periodically to donate to my 'NYC Half Marathon' page."*
As you may know, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor this past November. Shortly after diagnosis, I underwent an awake craniotomy on November 21st, 2017. I am now entering the next phase of treatment and recognize that there are limited options for myself and those diagnosed with other forms of brain cancer. There are simply not enough dedicated resources to support ongoing innovative clinical research that could otherwise ignite hope for patients.
This journey has made me want to focus my energies on an initiative that I feel passionately about and believe in. It has also inspired me to live life to the fullest and challenge myself in ways I never previously thought possible. And so, I have decided to run the Chicago and NYC marathons alongside many friends and family to raise money for the American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA).
The ABTA is the first national nonprofit organization dedicated solely to brain tumors. Their mission is to advance the understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goal of improving, extending, and ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis. Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care.
