Please join us on Saturday, April 21, 2012, for the inaugural Fighting For The Cure Walk. Fighting For The Cure is a Drake High School student-run organization whose primary purpose is to increase awareness and raise money for medical research to improve treatments across a variety of diseases. We are proud in our first year to be partnering with the National Brain Tumor Society, as we raise money for Oligodendroglioma brain tumor research.
The Oligodendroglioma tumor develops from glial cells called oligodendrocytes. It occurs frequently in the frontal or temporal lobes. It accounts for 2% of all brain tumors. Learn more about oligo brain cancer here.
Drake alumni and brothers, Zach and Spencer Greene were both diagnosed with Oligo brain cancer. Zach was diagnosed one year ago and Spencer was three years ago. Today they are helping to lead the fight to find a cure.
National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is a nonprofit organization committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. We aggressively drive strategic research, advocate for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community, and provide patient information.
