Head for the Cure 5K Fundraiser
Thank you for visiting our personal page and helping us to reach our fundraising goal!
Greg and I are joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure 5K on September 8, 2018 in Raleigh, NC. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. As many of you know our son, Matt's, father-in-law, Scott Groot, was diagnosed in March with brain cancer, so we are joining the team and the fight! As a couple who has dealt with the personal ups and downs of cancer, we are determined to do everything we can to help in the fight to bring awareness and find a cure! Your support is greatly appreciated!
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.
Please consider making a donation today to help us reach our goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
