Dear Friends,

Please join me in my 12th year in participating in the Race for Hope. I walk to raise awareness for those affected by brain tumors.  My sister, Gwen, lost the good fight against the most aggressive form of brain tumors, GBM IV in 2005 at the young age of 36. 

After forming the team, my father was diagnosed with three brain tumors, all GBM IV.  He now undergoes treatment, which hasn't changed much since Gwen was diagnosed. Now with two family members impacted by brain tumors, I so desperately want more research and a cure to be found. So little is known about the origin of brain tumors and there are limited treatment options once diagnosed. 

The Race for Hope - DC raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and support services for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Proceeds benefit the National Brain Tumor Society and Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
