Welcome to Team Maria's page
Dear Family and Friends,
This will be our 2nd year walking/running in the Race for Hope as Team Maria.
Last year, when we formed the team, Mom was in the beginning of her battle. By the time of the race, she was too weak to participate, and we had hoped that she could walk side-by-side with us the following year (2014).
After 7 months of courageously battling a stage 4 glioblastoma, she passed away (July 23, 2013). Last year we walked in hope of finding a cure for her and having many more years together. This year, we are walking in her memory and for the hope that people who are fighting for their lives now, and who will be diagnosed in the future, will have more treatment options, quality of life, and God willing a day when they can say they are cancer free!
Mom was so excited for us to participate in the Race last year, so we know she will be smiling as we walk together with other people touched by brain cancer. If you would like to join us and walk/run together, please join our Team. If you are unable to walk with us, we are extremely grateful for any donations you are able to make.
Rest in Peace Mama
