My sister is the founder of the MN Brain Tumor 5K in honor of Dave Melde who lost his fight with Glioblastoma in 2009. Due to her dedication and tenacity to the 5K and commitment to the Musella Foundation,thousands of dollars have been raised for brain tumor research and awareness. She turned her grief into a positive plan of action to raise funding for much needed research to help others.
I support this cause in memory of a great man-Dave Melde who fought valiantly to survive. He is not here to teach his grandchildren how to throw a frisbee or bait a hook. They will never see his smile or witness his kind, gentle touch. He is very much missed by all of us who loved him. One of Dave's wishes was to help other people with this disease and raise funding to find a cure. Let us walk in his honor and others for hope to those faced with brain Tumors.
This event has raised over $500,000 to date for research and awareness. I know Dave is looking down and saying Cool, Cool! He would be so proud of Tammy for turning his pain into his legacy.
I also support this cause in honor of our dear friend, Sue who is a brain cancer survivor! We are very grateful for her healthy status, positive attitude and fun loving spirit. She kicked Brain Cancer's *** !
Please help by sponsoring me today! THANK YOU!
