Andy Garrow's Fundraiser:

Brain Tumor Foundation NYC 2017

THE STORY:

This New York Marathon is being run in memory of Anne Walton, my mother-in-law. A  kind spirit, generous person and wonderful cook, Anne was diagnosed with brain cancer less than a year after beginning a much deserved retirement and we lost her in 2004. 


As Stuart Scott talked about in his ESPY's speech, Anne fought cancer in the manner in which she  lived, with grace and dignity. She lived in a manner that makes us talk to her granddaughters, Annabelle and Daisy, with so much pride and many fond memories.


This New York Marathon is being run in memory of Anne and the wonderful life she live. It is being run for all those that are affected by its impact and that includes my amazing wife Sarah, my daughters and all our wonderful Walton and Ferguson relatives.


It is my honour to run this extraordinary race in her memory and ask  friends and family to make a contribution below to support the Brain Tumor Foundation. 

 

BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION wrote -

The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) supports the whole patient by addressing their social, financial and emotional needs.  In addition, the Foundation promotes the importance of early detection of brain tumors through the education of medical professionals and the public.

The Road to Early Detection, an unprecedented initiative of BTF, offers free MRI brain scans to the public.  With nationwide participation and support, BTF’s Road to Early Detection campaign is now an official research study.  Although MRI scans to screen for brain tumors are not considered part of standard preventive care, we hope that our research examining the brain scans of thousands of individuals will shed new light on early detection and prevention of this dreaded disease and make treatment more effective when caught early.

*  Brain tumors can be extremely aggressive.  They are rarely detected at a size and stage when surgical removal results in a treatment that is successful and sustained.

* Close to 1,000,000 people are living with brain tumors that have yet to be detected. 

  *  Brain tumors do not discriminate.
