BENEFITING: Children's Medical Center Dallas
Mark Deramee fought a very brave and hard 6 month long battle against brain cancer. On January 14, 1999, at the young age of 11, Mark lost his battle with his brain tumor but won the hearts of everyone who knew him. He will always live on in the hearts of everyone that his loving but short life touched.
Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death from childhood cancer. There are more than 120 different types of brain tumors, making effective treatment very complicated. Pediatric brain tumors are different from those in adults and are often treated differently. The money that is raised is used for research on how to successfully treat children who develop brain tumors. Fo this reason we are collecting money for Childrens Medical Center in Dallas for Childhhod Brain Tumor Research in memory of Mark.
