BENEFITING: B CURED
ORGANIZER: B CURED
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
My mom, Kathryn Clauss, was diagnosed with a stage 4 glioblastoma in February 2013. While I have supported B*Cured for several years, its mission has taken on a whole new meaning for me and my family over these past 6 months.
I am running my first marathon for mom. Because she ran it just a few years ago, and would give anything to be able to run it now. Because she is a fighter, and determined, and often takes on seemingly insurmountable tasks, and somehow makes it through. I cheered "DIG DEEP" when she ran her marathon, and I cheer for her to "DIG DEEP" again while I run mine.
Thank you for any and all support.

B*CURED funds vital brain cancer research. We do it because many of us lost a parent, a spouse, or a beloved friend to this devastating disease. Every day 550 people in the US will be diagnosed with a brain tumor and because there are 120 different types and because it is the brain, it can be complicated to treat. Survival rates from brain cancer are depressingly low.
B*CURED aims to change this story. We provide grants to innovative scientific research at leading medical institutions like Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Yale, Columbia, Mass General, and more; 8 research grants to date in our 5 year existence. We bring more brain power to the fight against brain cancer.
