BENEFITING: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION
Katie and Greg Nowicki are running the 2017 New York City Marathon in support of the Brain Tumor Foundation and honoring a very special woman. Greg lost his mother, Ellen Nowicki, to Glioblastoma on October 23, 2016. Ellen fought the brain tumor for 15 months, trying all possible avenues of treatment available to her including surgery by a top neurosurgeon and a clinic trial through NYC Sloan-Kettering, chemotherapy, and radiation. As the family was unexpectedly thrown into quickly coming up to speed on the latest advanced treatment for a rare brain tumor diagnosis it is always helpful to have more education, community and treatment options available . The Brain Tumor Foundation offers this support to families that are going through a devastating brain tumor diagnosis such as Glioblastoma. Ellen Nowicki was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and raised her family their as well. It will be extremely special for Greg and I to honor her as we run the 2017 New York City Marathon. Thank you for your consideration in donating to the Brain Tumor Foundation.
