My name is Jody Christopher and I am a brain tumor survivor. I will never forget the phone call I received at work when I heard the following words "..you have a brain tumor, it's benign, but you need to see a surgeon within the next two weeks".  From those very words my whole world imploded, and nothing has been the the same. Those words gave me a chance to re-evaluate my life on what is really important.....My family, friends, and the sweet smell of life that God has given to me.

Although I suffer minor effects from surgery, I still live with the possibility that the tumor will re-appear. Since my diganosis, I have completed three marathons and a triathlon.  I am proud to say " My name is Jody Christopher and I am a marathon runner, because I run for a cure. I run for those who are no longer able, and for those who lost the race as a result of their tumor.

In his closing words at the  1993 ESPY speech, Coach Jim Valvano said "....Don't give up, don't ever give up".  I will continue to run until a cure is found...won't you join me in my run to eliminate any and all brain tumors.
