THE STORY:

Team Mama Dukes is commited to raise $100,000 in support of Brain Tumor Foundation and our mother. Our mom is one of the most bad ass and inspiring women you will ever meet. She was brought up the mean streets of the Bronx, raised three boys after our father passed away from Leukemia when we were ages 4, 6, and 8, put herself through grad school at NYU, became a techer in New York, and taught us all how to be tough and live life to the fullest.

 Our mom, Suzanne was diagnosed with Glioblastoma this past summer after spending her entire career in the New York State School System as a math teacher. She had less than two months to enjoy her retirement before she was diagnosed and rushed in for emergency brain surgery in Massachussets. Less than a few hours out of BRAIN SURGERY, she was walking around and cleaning her hospital room. Shortly after that, she underwent 6 weeks of chemo therapy and radiation and is currently in remission, and kicking cancer's ass. She's been spending her days doing Yoga, Zumba, catching up with all of her amazing friends, and spoiling her three grand children rotten.

Our team is made up of Brian Scherer(Best Friend), Alisha Valdez(Sister In-Law), Stephen Perry(Son) and John Perry(Son).  We have roots in New York, but are currently spread accross the country in Austin, TX - Park City, UT and San Francisco, CA. Over the next year were are going to do grass roots fundraising through this website, host a silent auction and charity event in Park City, UT leading up to the marathon. The date for the event and auction is TBD, but if anyone has items or ideas for auciton iteams please reach out to us.

We wanted to make a HUGE statment with our fundraising effort, and not to solicate and large donations from our friends and family, but to spread this effort around and get a lot of little donations, and items that we can donate and use for our silent auction. We appreciate you reading our story and donating to this amazing cause. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Hey, John. I don’t know you or your mom but your video was a huge inspiration to me. I’m so glad to read that your mom is in remission and staying active. I lost my mom to GBM in March of 2015 and I’ve been considering running the 2018 marathon to raise money for the Brain Tumor Foundation as well. I’d love to learn more about your experience so far so that I can do a similar fundraiser next year. If you have a minute could you shoot me an email at jeff@theUPstudio.com? Thanks for the inspiration! - jeff 2 months ago
