Hi Vanessa,

I just came across your story and wanted to pass along my support and congratulations. It looks like I missed your running of the NYC Marathon, but I still wanted to let you know how inspiring your story is. I hear from people everyday that have been affected by a brain tumor diagnosis and it is wonderful to be able to point them towards examples of people who are attacking this challenege with strength and determination, like yourself.

Thank you for allowing your stength and bravery to serve as an inspiration to others. And on behalf of all organizations like ours that are fighting for a cure, I thank you for bringing much needed attention and funding to the brain tumor space.

Best,
Danielle

The holidays are right around the corner! For many, this is an exciting time with lots of presents but for women and children suffering from domestic abuse, the only gift they want is a happy home. Please remember the generous spirit of the holidays and consider donating to my "For the Kids!" Campaign.

Here's a December vote for you, friend! If you have a chance, a return vote would make you the most awesome person ever!

CROWDRISING SINCE: Jun 27, 2011
Stuff About Me:

 

In October 2010, Vanessa ran the Melbourne Half Marathon and qualified for the New York Marathon for 2011. During the race, she felt a little dizzy but didn’t think anything of it – it was half marathon after all!

But only three weeks later, she was suddenly very ill. The doctors diagnosed Vanessa with a brain tumor, which she’d probably had for the last ten years, and needed immediate surgery. On November 4, the surgery was successfully completed and a tumor the size of a tennis ball removed. Thankfully it was benign.

Vanessa spent the next week in the Intensive Care Unit recovering and Tim spent the week thanking god for his wife back!

But being a fit person Vanessa recovered fast and a few hours out of ICU she was taking her first steps around the corridors of the hospital. The neurosurgeon discharged Vanessa a week ahead of schedule as she had recovered so well and told her to do nothing for a month. But he didn’t understand Vanessa’s idea of nothing meant twice-daily walks, which soon turned into small runs.

In April 2011, Vanessa received her acceptance into the New York Marathon, but Tim was not so successful in the lottery. But determined to do it together, they decided to run for a charity – but not just any charity. 

Almost exactly a year after Vanessa’s brain surgery Vanessa and Tim will be flying half way around the world to run the New York Marathon proudly for The Brain Tumor Foundation of America - a charity very close to their hearts (and heads!). And as they don’t do things by halves, they're aiming to do it fast!

Look out New York!
