I will participate in the 2023 MN Brain Tumor 5K in memory of my Dad! He was not only a Dad but a friend and my original Ski buddy. This disease takes people so fast. Help us find a cure so nobody has to go through what he and my family have had to endure. Money raised from this event will be used for brain tumor research.
-Glioblastoma (or GBM) is one of the most complex, deadly, and treatment-resistant cancers.
-More than 13,000 Americans are expected to receive a GBM diagnosis in 2020.
-GBM accounts for 48 percent of all primary malignant brain tumors.
-It is estimated that more than 10,000 individuals in the United States will succumb to glioblastoma every year.
-The five-year survival rate for glioblastoma patients is only 6.8 percent, and the average length of survival for glioblastoma patients is estimated to be only 12 to 18 months.
