The Race for Hope - DC presented by Cassidy Turley raises funds to support innovative research initiatives and provide information for brain tumor patients and their families. This amazing event relies on the dedication and enthusiasm of individuals, families, teams, volunteers, sponsors and donors. Thank you for your support in helping us find a cure for brain tumors!
I am running in honor of my mother Karen Krywucki; she was diagnosed on Oct 22 2009 with a Glioblastoma Multiforme Brain Tumor; on Oct 26th she had major brain surgery which removed 95% of her tumor from there she was treated with chemotherapy, and radiology treatment, including cyber-knife treatments, all done at Georgetown Medical Center. Mama fought long and hard but unfortunatly lost her battle and went home to God on Jan 19th 2011. I love and miss her dearly. The reason my team is Just peachy is all my life, and all my mother life whenever you would ask mama how she was doing, no matter what, her answer was always JUST PEACHY!
Hopefully one day we will have enough knowledge to be able to beat cancer and not lose anymore loved one.
