THE STORY:

The Brain Tumor Foundation has been an organization close to my heart for as long as I can remember. After my Grandpa Al struggled with a glioblastoma for two years, his disease took over and he lost his battle against brain cancer. Dr. Kelly, my grandpa’s neurosurgeon, and my dad worked together to establish The Brain Tumor Foundation with the determination to help other victims of brain tumors and their families by providing awareness and support of this deadly disease.  


With the launch of the mobile MRI unit and its visits to cities across the US, BTF is making sure that brain scans are just as accessible as other cancerous tests, so that no one finds out before it is too late.  If regular screenings of the brain were around 25 years ago, maybe Grandpa Al’s tumor would have been caught early enough, so that he could have survived or at least lived long enough for me to remember my time with him. My dad has committed his life to making sure that other families do not have to go through what he went through. Even though I can’t remember my Grandpa Al, his everlasting legacy is shown through my dad’s hard work and persistence at raising awareness for brain tumors and brain cancer.


I am extremely proud of my dad for helping to establish The Brain Tumor Foundation and for his generosity and dedication to seeking a cure. I am running this marathon, my first marathon, in honor of my dad, Michael and in loving memory of my Grandpa Al. Although I may be a running novice, I know that I can accomplish my goal and I ask for your help in reaching that goal in order to eradicate brain tumors. I set a goal of $10,008, a multiple of 18, which symbolizes the Hebrew word for life. Please consider helping me reach my goal in the name of life for The Brain Tumor Foundation. Thanks for all of your support!

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.
