Our team is walking in honor of Jacob and all children and families diagnosed with brain cancer. Jacob was diagnosed with ependymoma brain cancer in 2009 at the age of 2 1/2 years old. He is a 4 1/2 year survivor. His treatments have left him with many side effects for which he see 15 specialists today to monitor and treat. Jacob's determination, smile, and wit inspire us everyday.
Ependymoma is an agressive brain cancer that often reoccurs even 5+ years after treatment. A cure is needed to fight this disease. Please join us in walking this race in support of Jacob and to help fund much needed research.
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!
