THE STORY:

Please help me in raising awareness for such a worthy cause. With your generosity, The Brain Tumor Foundation can continue to be proactive in  accomplishing their goals of bringing attention to this debilitating disease. Your donations will help support those affected by brain tumors and will enable survival for so many. That's why I'm so excited to be participating in the 2017 NYC Marathon for the Brain Tumor Foundation.  It'll be my honor to run for all those who are fighting and in memory for all those who have lost their battle. I myself know the hardship of this disease as I run in honor of my Aunt Gemma who lost her battle to glioblastoma in 2015. I deeply appreciate all and any that you can donate!


A little about The Brain Tumor Foundation...

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 BTF's 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.)
