THE STORY:

Welcome and thanks for visiting!

For the last 10 years, my career has been dedicated to brain tumor research and using imaging (MRI) to determine who is most likely to respond to a given therapy. Did you know that this type of cancer is the 3rd most common cancer in people under the age of 35? Brain tumors are also especially difficult to treat because of their location and the fact that both the tumor and treatment can be detrimental to normal brain function. Despite the growing number of treatments available and advances in brain tumor research, the best prognoses still result from early detection. 

The journey to find the cure is long and challenging, much like a marathon. So, in support of the effort I am running the New York City Marathon on November 4th to raise money for the Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF). BTF provides support to families, raises awareness, and has begun providing free brain scans to people across the US using a portable MRI (similar to the one I use in my research) to detect any signs of a brain tumor early on, before any symptoms arise.  I would like your support in raising funds for this important cause. Any amount will help us toward the ultimate goal of finding a cure. To make a donation please use this website and I will make sure you receive a photo of me running the marathon. 

Thanks in advance,

Janine

Team BTF is proud to be participating in the ING New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 4, 2012. 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, and initiative of BTF, was launched to increase public awareness about early screening for brain tumors and the urgent need for preventative brain scans.

 

More than half of the people diagnosed with brain tumors could be saved if brain scans were regarded to be as essential as mammograms or routine blood tests.  We have grown accustomed to routinely checking for breast, colon, prostate and other cancers – why not brain tumors?

 

Every 20 minutes someone in the United States dies of a brain tumor

Possibly half of all brain tumor patients could have their tumors successfully removed if they were detected early, before physical symptoms become apparent.  Early detection and complete removal is the best known method of treating deadly tumor growth.      

 

Funds raised will go directly to the expansion of

The Road to Early Detection campaign.

 

EARLY DETECTION + RESEARCH = CURE
