Support Victoria’s Fight!
We are participating in the Race for the Brain to improve the lives of all those affected by brain tumors. Specifically, we are participating in honor of Victoria, a New Albany freshman who was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. This vibrant and vivacious young woman is an honor student, a gifted athlete, and a talented musician. Now, however, she is facing challenges with the things we all take for granted every day: seeing, hearing, and even walking.
Victoria is embarking on a very difficult journey as she begins aggressive chemotherapy and radiation treatments to shrink the tumor in her brain. Due to its location, the tumor is inoperable. Though there is great optimism that her treatments will shrink the tumor, relieve pressure on her brain, and help Victoria return to normal life, this beast may be something she’ll fight for the rest of her life, until more comprehensive treatment options and cures are developed.
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.
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.
We 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. Join the fight to find a cure in time for Victoria, and for all others who are facing life with brain tumors.
Your support ensures this important work will continue.
SLAY THE BEAST!
