Team Tom and Sally
In 2006, I personally knew no one who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. In 2007, that changed. My mom ended up in a hospital where we were told, after several tests, that she had a brain tumor. She would have brain surgery the following week. About 14 months later she was gone.
Along this 14 months I met someone who, prior to meeting my mom and I, also had no personal exposure to brain cancer. She worked at the facility that helped take care of my mom after the diagnosis and surgery. A year later, her husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor, followed similar treatments as my mom, and also became a life lost to brain cancer.
This friend and I teamed up in 2010 to honor our loved ones, Sally and Tom, and to raise awareness of brain tumors. We have walked in Portland's Brain Tumor Walk every year since then. Please help us continue to raise awareness and funds to fight off brain tumors for future generations.
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!
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. They are aggressively driving strategic research and advocating for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community. Your support ensures this important work will continue.
