About the National Brain Tumor Society:

National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding better treatments, and ultimately a cure, for people living with a brain tumor today and anyone who will be diagnosed tomorrow. This means effecting change in the system at all levels.

For more information about the National Brain Tumor Society, visit http://www.braintumor.org/.

My mom, Margaret Mary Baczek, has Stage IV brain cancer called glioblastoma. After being diagnosed in November 2012, enduring surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, and never losing her smile, she has been a warrior with the brightest light every step of the way.

On January 24, 2014, we learned that the cancer had spread to her brainstem. Clinical trials are the next plan of attack, as there aren't enough treatment options out there. There is no cure. Which brings me to our cause..

To help my mom and people like her, some fabulous fellow Zumba® instructors and I are putting together a Zumbathon® to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society! The event will be held on Sunday, March 23, 2014 from 1-3pm at Work Out World (WOW) in Plymouth, MA, with 100% of proceeds going to the charity! Tickets are only $20, there will be tons of raffles, and there will be tons of fun! Donations from those who can't make it but want to show their support will be greatly appreciated as well!

Please mark your calendars and spread the word! Despite brain cancer, my mom danced on Broadway, danced at my wedding, and dances because she still can. Please come do the same! Come show your support to my biggest inspiration, who will soon become yours the second you meet her. Your support will make us one step closer to finding the cure we so desperately need!

Thank you so much.

Sincerely, Victoria
