THE STORY:

Brain Tumors Don’t Discriminate!

My name is Meghan Servello and I am so excited to run the NYC Marathon with the Brain Tumor Foundation. This will be my first marathon and although I gained entry to the race through the 9+1 program, I could not pass up the opportunity to raise money for such a great cause. My goal is to raise $1,500 by race day on November 6th, 2016! The money raised will go directly to the Brain Tumor Foundation.

I will run the marathon in honor of my Mom who survived a brain tumor when I was 10 years old. My family and I are lucky that she had symptoms that led to an early diagnosis of Occipital Meningioma. After a successful surgery by Dr. Patrick J. Kelly, Brain Tumor Foundation founder, she has fully recovered to live a happy and healthy life.  

I hope that by running on Team BTF, I will not only bring awareness to the need for early detection, but also offer my support to patients, family and caregivers, so that they know they are not alone.

Many thanks for your generous support that will help patients and families and encourage me to get through the 26.2 mile journey to the finish line!

The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor by offering support groups, medical referrals and informational events.

Brain tumors are real and there’s a good chance it will happen to someone you know or someone you love in your lifetime. 

-- Mark Ruffalo, Award Winning Actor

BTF’s Road to Early Detection campaign was launched to increase public awareness about early detection of brain tumors and the urgent need for brain scan screenings.

With the expanded Sponsor-A-City Tour, BTF is providing free MRI brain scans nationally, in the hope of understanding the relationship between patient factors and brain tumors.  In collaboration with a multidisciplinary research team at Columbia University in New York City, we are gathering key information from these scans that will hopefully help us to better understand the epidemiology of brain tumors – whether it be environmental, genetic or some other still unexamined source. 

* This year, close to 700,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with a brain or central nervous system tumor.

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

Please support our runners’ efforts to raise awareness of the need for early detection of brain tumors.  DONATE TODAY!
