Welcome to My Personal Page
In memory of my daughter Sydney, who inspired us all with her love, strength and courage. She lost her battle to a brain stem glioma in August of 2005, but I am taking the fight against brain tumors beyond my daughter Sydney's.
I have been a strong advocate for brain tumor patients serving presently as a member of the board of directors of the National Brain Tumor Society. This organization funds innovative research and helps patients advocate for themselves as well as public policy for all brain tumor patients.
Last year about 5.0 million dollars in research grants were funded by NBTS. This year we will be starting a new Bio-Systems Research Initiative which we feel is the new direction in brain tumor research, to help drive the field towards better therapeutics. NBTS has also made great strides in elevating funding for Pediatric brain tumor research, and will continue funding Developmental Neurobiology grants which are vital to understanding why normal brain cells switch to cancer forming glial cells in our children who develop brain tumors.
TOGETHER WE WILL FIND A CURE AND IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE OF BRAIN TUMOR PATIENTS!
