THE STORY:

I am running in memory of my friend Gennel Pierre who passed away from a tumor on September 30, 2010 at 25 years old.

Finding out that someone close to you has a brain tumor is devasting. When her family was informed that she had a brain tumor it was an immediate priority to have it removed. Unfortunately, another tumor at the back of her brain was found during the surgery. Her family was told that at this point having it removed would kill her and nothing could be done.

By running for this organization I hope to bring awareness to early detection, provide support for any family that has to deal with these issues, and honor Gennel, a beautiful young woman that brought so much happiness to the people in her life. I wished that I could have done something to help, and now I can!

You can too!!!

BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION wrote -

Team BTF is proud to be participating in the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 6, 2011. Please help us raise awareness and funds.

The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor.  The Road to Early Detection campaign, an initiative of BTF, was launched to increase public awareness about early screening for brain tumors and the urgent need for preventative brain scans.  With BTF's Bobby Murcer Mobile MRI Unit, free brain scans are offered throughout the five boroughs of New York City.  To date, early detection and complete removal is the best known method of treating deadly tumor growth.

Funds raised will go directly to The Road to Early Detection campaign.

                            EARLY DETECTION + RESEARCH = CURE
