Bay Area Brain Tumor Walk

The Jaywalkers

Thank you for visiting The Jaywalkers team page. 

The Brain Tumor Walk is an annual event, where those affected by brain tumors unite to inspire hope and take action in the fight against brain tumors. Progress in this fight starts with one walker, one team. 

Please join us on Sunday, June 24, 2018 as we continue to walk in honor of


"Attention: To my loving Family and Friends, I am writing this letter to you all to Thank you from the bottom of my heart for doing this Brain Tumor walk for me. The Lord has blessed me with you family and friends and I am so proud and honored to have you all in my life. Words cannot express my love for each and every one of you.

For those of you that don't know my medical background, I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer at the age of 15 in 1996. Went through all the hardships with treatment and was back on my feet in high school as a sophomore. I was able to take extra classes and courses and graduate with my class of 1999.

The Lord guided me to Healthcare from 2001-2011 and I became a Medical Assistant for the Oncology Department and Emergency Technician in the Emergency Department. Then became the medical assistant for the Pre Surgery Clinic at Kaiser Permanente SSF. I wanted to help those as they helped me back when I was 15 and I am very proud of what I accomplished.

Once again, Thank You all for doing this for me and God Bless all of you. Love you all......."
