No person should ever have to face the challenge of a brain tumor, much less a beautiful young woman with her whole promising future ahead of her. I feel mostly helpless to help my friend and her family, but I figured that one small thing I could do is bring people together to raise awareness and money to support the National Brain Tumor Society.
Victoria is facing a long battle with chemotherapy and radiation to shrink her tumor. Because it is inoperable, this tumor may be with her until more comprehensive treatments and cures are developed. That's where we can help - money raised through this event will go toward the research that will find a cure.
The 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. Funds raised here help to direct promising research, support families who are currently coping with the effects of a brain tumor diagnosis, and advocate for change.
In honor of Victoria, and all others who are facing this fight, I appreciate your support.
