Bay Area Brain Tumor Walk

Jamie's Jam

My life changed last September when I had a seizure and soon learned that I had a brain tumor that turned out to be cancerous. It was an aggressive grade and very rare in someone my age (22 years old). For the last 7 months, I've had 2 surgeries, 30 radiation treatments and 2 months of chemotherapy (which will continue for a total of 12 months). My situation was further complicated by a stroke I had during the first surgery which affected all of my sensation and movement on my left side, so on top of everything else, I am having to re-learn how to use my left side. Needless to say, I want to help others potentially avoid this happening to them, so, with the support of my family and friends, we are walking to help raise money to advance the research and treatment of brain cancer. You can join the cause either in person at the walk, or through a donation. Anything is appreciated!

 

I am uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I need your help in this fight. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
