Welcome to Sarah's Page
I am walking for my Dad and my sister, Emily. That's a picture of Dad around 1986, at work. He died five years later. Emily began her treatment on August 28 and I hope you all join me in saying "Ta-ta, Tallulah!" (the tumor is Tallulah--send an eviction notice to Emily with a hashtag of #TataTallulah on your favorite social media place)
I am joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Cleveland on October 7, 2017. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Emily's treatment will be at the Cleveland Clinic, a recipient of HFTC fundraising. This means we are making a direct impact to Emily's care.
Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight.
Head for the Cure works to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where those diagnosed with brain cancer are honored and celebrated by their friends and families, those who have lost their battles are remembered, and we are all inspired to carry on the fight.
Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors. Will you join in helping raise awareness for brain cancer?
