We are walking/running to support our Dad, Mauricio Gomez, who through his fight with cancer continues to inspire us as a great father, husband, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend. He was diagnosed with a Glioblastoma IV in June 2013. After two surgeries, radiation, chemotherapy and NovoCure my dad continues his fight cancer and continues to inspire us with his determination to fight cancer. The tumor had been stable the majority 2014 until we started seeing higher blood flow to the tumor in January 2015. A new treatment plan was proposed, and thanks to new research and advancements in the field our dad was able to receive this new treatment plan that has shown great improvement on his tumor over the past few year. This is a treatment plan that would not have been available in 2013 at the time of his diagnosis.
Please join us in the 5k on May 19 2019. As a family we have seen first hand how much research has impacted the treatment for Brain Tumors since our dad was diagnosed. I do not have to words to express how important your support is to Brain Tumor research.
Thank you for supporting our team!
