Just as Bob/Bart made such a difference in lives while he was alive, supporting the effort to find a cure would be as he would want. We need to extend ourselves to think as he would. He set the bar and expected all who worked with and for him to follow as he gave guidance and counsel. He was a true American Hero.
We need to find a cure for Brain Tumors. Bob/Bart's, Dad also had a glioblastoma. We need double the support for Brain Tumor cure.
It will be exciting to see how much support we can raise on his behalf. Through laughter and through tears, let's get the spirit moving, spreading the word for Master Chief Bartholomew's campaign to raise funds.
