Welcome to My Personal Page
This March, I will be flying to Austin TX to participate in Head for the Cure Central Texas and celebrate the life of my friend Elise. Elise had an infectious laugh that still echoes in my heart and a smile that radiated like pure sunshine. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her, though her legacy will live on through her beautfiul children and through the contributions that she made to advancing brain cancer research.
Each year, over 200,000 people in the US are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. Multiple people in my life have been (and continue to be) affected. 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.
Funds raised by Head for the Cure support the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative, a network of medical centers that includes Duke University (where Elise received treatment) with the expertise and the desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.
Please consider making a donation today to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, in Elise's memory and in honor of those that are still facing this disease. Thank you! xoxo
