HIS STORY!

8 years ago all of this started for Jeff. My wonderful husband, Jeff, was diagnosed with brain cancer, GBM. He was my hero as he went through surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy. He did it all with courage and strength.  Almost 4 years of clean MRI's.  Three years ago Jeff had a recurrence and went through surgery, stem cell rescue therapy and high dose chemotherapy.  Fall 2012 Jeff had his third occurence with the brain cancer and started Avastin to try and control the growth of the tumor. This was followed by a trial that was not effective and then more Avastin with Temodar chemotherapy which lowered his platelets too much and then on just Avastin again to keep the tumor growth at bay but on March 24, 2013 the horrible disease took Jeff from us. 

My goal is to prevent another family from losing their hero, another wife from losing her soul mate, a child losing their father and a parent losing their child.  I want to make this work and I want to be help.  This is something I can do, something to help me focus and something you can do.   My amazing sister Aviva Baker and my supportive and loving friend Kendra Booth will be running and raising money for this event as well.  Help me race towards a cure!

Thanks for visiting my personal fundraising page! I have committed to running the Marine Corps Marathon or MCM10K as a part of Race Towards A Cure.  The money I raise will benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure, and get us one step closer to a cure!  

I can't do this without your help! Please consider supporting my efforts with a donation, and join in the fight against brain cancer.  To make a donation, click on the "Donate" button to the right.

Thanks in advance for your support!   

Love Josie!!
