Friends of Carol Welsh - Super Survivor

Carol is a Super Sister, Super Friend, and Super Survivor.  Since her diagnosis in 2000, Carol has had three craniotomies, radiation, chemotherapy, a shunt, and Gamma Knife surgery.  Because of the side effects of the ependymoma tumor and the surgeries, she's also had two tracheostomies.  As if this weren't enough, this fall, Carol was also treated for DCIS, a non-invasive, 'Stage 0' breast cancer, unrelated to the brain tumor.  She's an absolutely amazing woman and we love her very much.  (To read more about Carol's story, visit Carol's website:  

The first Friends of Carol Welsh team was formed in 2004, raised about $100, and had five members, including Carol, who walked the 5K only 7 weeks after her second surgery.  Since that time, friends (ncluding fellow Survivors Beth Beardsley, Erin Kalan, and LJ Avalos) have joined us to raise more than $110,000; the funds are divided between Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure and the National Brain Tumor Society, organizations dedicated to finding a cure by providing research funding and supporting the brain tumor community.
