Welcome to JK's Melee Team Page! This team has been formed as a show of love and support for Joe and Kelly, and their journey to beat cancer.
The mission of Head for the Cure is to raise awareness and funding for brain cancer research and to inspire hope for the community of brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers and other supporters, while celebrating their courage, spirit and energy. Many have come before Joe and through the generosity of their families and friends, they have paved the way for research and treatment. Let's pay it forward.
Of the 10 events held nationwide, one of them is right here in their hometown of Cleveland!
Please join us by walking/running as part of the team in the Head for the Cure 5k Walk/Run in Cleveland at Edgewater Park on October 7, 2017.
If walking/running is not in the cards, please consider making any size donation to help reach the team goal. Let's celebrate Joe and help Head for the Cure defeat brain cancer, step by step!
Thank you for visiting Joe's team page.

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.
