February 2019 was 23 years since my brain tumor surgery, which is why I chose that as the name of this team. I'm excited to return to New Egypt and participate in this year's National Walk To End Brain Tumors there. Congratulations to my long time friend Bruce Blount for organizing this event again!
It's estimated that 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. All types of brain tumors can cause life threatening effects, diminish quality of life, and change everything for patients and their loved ones. Sadly, many people do not survive brain tumors or their treatments.
I hope you will choose to contribute to this event and help support brain tumor research. Thank you!
