Carol Welsh is a great sister and friend. She has been battling her ependymoma brain tumor since 2000 - and has had 3 surgeries, radiation and chemo. In 2004, she walked in the race just 7 weeks after surgery; in 2005 she walked in the race while undergoing chemotherapy.  Every day she deals with the aftermath of her surgeries - double vision, balance issues, trouble swallowing, and after suffering respiratory arrest in 2008, having to have a trach, which helps her breathe at night.  The tumor came back again in 2012, and Carol had gamma knife surgery February 18, 2013 at the University of Virginia Hospital.   

I hope you'll sponsor me (or someone else on our team) and help find a cure for brain tumors. By the way, I'm in charge of the volunteers for the Race - if you'd like to volunteer, I'd love your help! Please e-mail me at margowelsh2011@gmail.com
