I am participating to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause and that is why I am walking!
On July 26th, my friend and colleague Connie Slocum had a brain tumor removed that left behind a very aggressive cancer Grade IV GBM (Glioblastoma Multiforme). Connie is participating in The Race for the Brain and determined to cross that finish line! I and the members of Connie's Crew intend to be with her every step of the way to show our love and support for her in this walk and her fight.
I have joined this movement to bring the issue of brain tumors to the forefront. Progress is being made, but there is so much more to be done.
If you would like to join us on Oct 6 as part of Connie's Crew, click on the REGISTER button and join our team. Or if that's not possible, perhaps you could support our efforts by clicking the DONATE button.
