Welcome to My Personal Page
The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cassidy Turley raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and provide information for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
This is a very personal cause for me. In November 2009, by husband David was diagnosed with a brain tumor. We felt that we were living a nightmare, but it became even worse when we discovered the tumor was a glio blastoma, a highly aggressive brain cancer. After his diagnosis, he underwent a 6+ hour surgery, chemo and radiation twice, and infusions that were part of a clinical trial. He had his share of complications along the way, including multiple blood clots in his leg, vision difficulties as a result of the radiation, weakness and lack of control of his left arm and leg, and a fall that left him with a compression fracture in his spine.
In June 2012, even with the care of the best medical team in the world, the cancer won.
Every day was a challenge for Dave and our entire family. No family should have to go through what we have gone through. Please help me to raise money to find a way to prevent other families from having to experience this nightmare. Every dollar helps. Thank you for your generous contributions.
