Team Fiza (East Coast)
The last two years Team Fiza has participated in the National Brain Tumor Society's annual walk in San Francisco. This year Team Fiza (west coast) will be walking for a third time, and Team Fiza (east coast) will participate for the first time in the Race for Hope in Washington, DC.
We walk to remember and to honor Fiza Quraishi. Fiza was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma Multiforme in December 2014. Following a resection of her tumor, a course of radiation, chemotherapy, and two clinical trials, Fiza died in February 2016. Fiza was a daughter, a mother (to a 5-year-old), a sister, a wife, a beloved friend, and an attorney working on behalf of disadvantaged children, but she was, as anyone who met her can attest, much greater than the sum of her parts. She was brilliant and kind. She was multitudinous and lovely, and she is mourned as much today as on the day she died.
