THE STORY:

Last month, valiant ten year old Gabriella Miller received her college degree from Shenandoah University. She is a warm and bright child fighting a terrible battle with brain cancer. My run will support Gabriella's Foundation, Smashing Walnuts.

When she was nine years old, Gabriella Miller was diagnosed with a walnut-sized inoperable brain tumor. Gabriella’s family literally began smashing walnuts with a frying plan as a symbolic gesture to support her battle against her tumor.

Through public speaking engagements and fundraising efforts, Gabriella quickly became a national childhood cancer advocate. Soon, people around the country began smashing walnuts in support of Gabriella and her efforts.

Since her diagnosis in November 2012, Gabriella has helped raise $275,000 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, $15,000 for a childhood brain tumor foundation, spoken at a variety of local and national awareness events and has authored a special writing in a children’s book about cancer, Beamer Learns About Cancer by Cindy Chambers, which was released September 2013 and now available on Amazon.com.

Gabriella’s energy and passion to help others motivated her to launch Smashing Walnuts Foundation, dedicated to finding a cure to childhood brain cancer.
