Each day, 500 people will be diagnosed with a brain tumor. Unfortunately my husband was one of those 500. Doctors discovered a mass on his brain in July 2018. He had surgery on July 16, 2018 and was diagnosed with Glioblastoma on July 31, 2018. On November 4, 2018, just four months into fighting this awful disease, he lost his battle. I've decided to get back into running again and this time start running "for a reason." I will be running the Chicago Marathon on October 13, 2019 and 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.
