Elliot and Jay are Running for Ethan
Thank you for helping Elliot and me to reach our fundraising goal!
Elliot and I are joining the fight against brain cancer by participating in Head for the Cure Chapel Hill on Saturday, September 8, 2018. Head for the Cure is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research.
Each year, over 200,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor, but we are running for one person in particular: Ethan Lassister. Ethan is eight years old, is one of Elliot's best friends, and he was diagnosed with a brain tumor last October. Ethan's parents have set up a CaringBridge account if you want to stay up-to-date on his progress: https://www.caringbridge.org/visit/ethanlassiter.
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 me reach my goal and to help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer.
