My Story

I'm a brain cancer survivor. My tumor was discovered accidentally after an MRI when I was 23 years old. It was a slow growing tumor, so my doctors recommended a "watchful waiting" approach. In 2008 the tumor had grown and after a biopsy, I was diagnosed with an Oligodendroglioma. Due to the location and size of the tumor, it is inoperable. I began TomoTherapy radiation and chemotherapy in the winter of 2008.

Since the discovery of my tumor, I've wanted to do something to help those diagnosed with a brain tumor and their families. Tie One On For Brain Cancer provides an opportunity for everyone to assist in the quest to fund research that focuses on new therapies for brain tumor patients and improvements to existing therapeutic options.

Whether you are a knitting novice or a pro, a donator of materials, or someone who loves to shop - everyone can take part in this fundraising effort.

I am the luckiest cancer patient I know. I look healthy, I feel healthy and I enjoy life. I have an incredibly supportive family and network of friends. And I'm so thankful that I have the ability to make a difference and raise awareness.
