Fundraising Honor Roll
Support My Fight Against Brain Tumors


I am participating to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause because 5 years ago my father died of a glioblastoma. It was sudden and aggressive and left us with just a memory in a matter of 4 months.   Once they diagnosed the grade and type of tumor, the doctors seemed like they were just throwing in the towel, and basically said all they could do was try to control his symptoms until the end. But what caused it in the first place?  Why did it grow so fast even with chemo and radiation?  It seemed like once they diagnosed it none of the doctors 
asked anymore questions.   I  believe that something caused it and that someday having that diagnosis will not necessarily mean the same thing it meant for my father. But we need research to get answers and that's why I am walking in this walk. 

Funds raised here helps to direct promising research, support families who are currently coping with the effects of a brain tumor diagnosis, and advocate for change.  

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. Please support my efforts!

National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS) is a leader in the brain tumor community, bringing together the best of research, patient services, and advocacy to be a comprehensive resource for patients, families, caregivers, researchers, and medical professionals.

NBTS invests wisely and strategically across the research spectrum, seeking new therapeutic targets and improving existing treatments, which will ultimately lead to a cure. NBTS provides education and information to help patients, families, and caregivers make informed decisions and develop strong support systems during every stage of the journey.


Your support ensures this important work will continue.
