Welcome to My Personal Page
Sixteen years ago my best friend's mom died after a 12 year battle with brain cancer. I often wonder if the advances in medicine would have saved or helped her quality of life.
In December of 2008, I met a brave young boy named Brian, who had been diagnosed with a brain tumor. His family asked if I would be willing to instruct him at home as he would miss quite a lot of school. I gladly accepted and so began my journey watching a boy fight a serious battle. After surgery,intense treatments ,and hospitalizations I am pleased to report that Brian is in school full time as a third grader , who is cancer free! It is through generous donations that progress has been made in the treatments of this kind of cancer. Brian and his family inspire me each day and I feel blessed to have been a part of his life.
I hope you will consider supporting me as I race on Brian's, Hunt for a Cure ,team next weekend .
The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cassidy Turley 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. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
