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 by running in the Chicago Marathon of 2018. Money raised will provide critical funding for brain tumor research and for supportive patient care. Over the past 5 years, I have been a nurse in the Neurology ICU. Daily I am faced with patients who are diagnosed with brain tumors, which often are incurable. Currently I am working on my Doctorate to become a Family Nurse Practitioner at UIC. Neuro Oncology is a major interest of mine, in hopes that we can find a cure for Glioblastomas and many other brain tumors. Please help contribute to a great cause. Every penny counts!
