We are accepting the challenge to participate in the Race for Hope Philadelphia. We would like to invite you to fight alongside us by joining our team or making a small donation to our cause.
This will be our 4th Race for Hope in honor of our Mom, Carol Frampton. In 2014 Glioblastoma invaded our family. It took a Mother, a Grandmother, a Sister, an Aunt, a co-worker, a Best Friend. It left us all with a void in our hearts that will never be filled.
Glioblastoma is extremely aggressive! It attacks the brain, the power house to the entire body..... and unfortunately so does the treatment! You are left wondering which part of the brain will be consumed by the time you wake up each morning. Will you be able to walk, talk, eat, see, hear, feel, perceive reality, breath on your own, and so on and so on?
This disease takes children and adults of all ages. The prognosis is poor with a medium survival rate being only 15 months. For our Mom, who had no health issues before her diagnoses, it was a short 5 months. Surreal!
With such a bleak chance of survival, there hasn't been much money going toward Glioblastoma research. Now more and more people are being diagnosed and we are still using treatments that are just as harmful as the tumor itself. We need to find a better way before one more family has to endure this pain.
We need people like you, to unite with us in the fight against brain tumors and support the National Brain Tumor Society’s work to find a cure.
Please, join us on Saturday October 7th at The Navy Yard, Marine Parade Grounds for the 2017 Race for Hope Philadelphia, a 5K (3.1 miles) walk/run.
Together we can help raise awareness and fund research for a cure!
