EVENT DATE: Nov 17, 2013
Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is the most common and most lethal of malignant primary brain tumors in adults. That said, it is still a rare type of cancer; so without private funding, the research to develop treatments to extend life expectancy, improve quality of living, and ultimately find a cure can NOT get done.
Please consider contributing as I run the 2013 Philadelphia Marathon for the benefit of this cause in honor of my Uncle Ron. I am late for fundraising, but better to surge at the end of a race, right? I would love to carry all of your support with me!
About Ron and GBM: My uncle was diagnosed with GBM in Feb 2012. With a successful surgery, radiation and chemo treatments, he has been able to beat the <50% 1-year survival rate, and median survival term of ~15 months. He has been fortunate enough to spend over a year beyond what is expected without treatment, longer than many other GBM patients do. Unfortunately, there is still not a cure.
I ask for your help in raising money for this great cause so that other families affected by this awful cancer gain hope for new and better treatments and more time to spend with their loved ones. THANK YOU!!!
