BENEFITING: B CURED
ORGANIZER: B CURED
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
About a year ago, my husband David Koch was diagnosed with Glioblastoma (GBM), an aggressive form of Brain Cancer. Since his diagnosis, we have set out to do whatever it takes to beat this horrible disease.
If there is anything that we have learned this past year it is that there is very promising, cutting edge research being done in the brain cancer space but that this research and the funding of clinical trials is significantly reliant on fundraising.
On, Sunday November 6th I will be teaming up with B*Cured running 26.2 miles in the New York City Marathon in hope to help raise funds and awareness. For more information on B*cured please see blow or you can visit www.bcured.org
You can also read more about David's journey here: thedavidkochreport.com.
Thank you in advance for your support!
B*CURED’s mission is to end brain cancer by funding innovative research grants. To date, B*CURED has awarded 14 grants to investigators searching for a cure for brain cancer at nationally ranked universities and hospitals.
B*CURED is an all-volunteer 501 (c) 3 organization, founded in 2008 by Debbie Needle and Melissa Salamé. B*CURED is run by co-presidents Karena Bailey and Kristin Duda. All money raised goes directly to brain cancer research.
B*CURED's fight is personal. All of us have had a loved one affected by this horrible illness. It is time to change the depressingly low statistics and give people the chance to survive brain cancer.
We will #BeatBrainCancer!
