I am so excited to participate in the Race/Walk for Pediatric Brain Cancer. Money raised from this event will be used for brain tumor research.
Today nearly 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and more than 69,000 others will be diagnosed this year. Brain tumors are often deadly, impact quality of life, and change everything for patients and their loved ones.
Our Big Why:
On 09/07/11 Joey at the age of 3 was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. Two Days later he had surgery to remove the cyst and tumor. On 04/05/12 Joeys MRI shows that the tumor is growing it has 30-50% growth so now we try gamma knife. Since the Gamma knife (his Mom also gives him a supplement Fulvic acid from mother earth labs) he has had very favorable results and yearly MRI's.
This is our 7th Annual Race in Jensen Beach, to help other children like Joey, in the Hope we will someday beat this disease
