Team Jake Turner
This will be our team's 8th year participating in this inspirational event. Jake was diagnosed with a ganglioglioma brain tumor when he was in 1st grade. He had surgery in November 2008 which removed most of the tumor. The piece of tumor that remained began to grow when he was in 3rd grade, and Jake had his second surgery on May 10, 2011. At 16 years old he is tumor free:) He continues to receive medical care through Children's National Medical Center. We are forever thankful that Jake will live a long and productive life. Jake always has a positive attitude and a smile on his face. Please join us in the fight against brain tumors.
