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 in honor of my brother, Steven (19),  who is battling a very aggressive rare form of brain cancer, called Atypical Teratoid Rabdoid Tumor or AT/RT at UCSF right now. He is undergoing a very aggressive form of treatment. Steven's initial tumor was 7cm. He had surgery and most came out. Not all.   Its a very tough battle. And he will spend a long time at the hospital.. already its been close to 2 months hes been away from home. The doctors are having a tough time trying to get rid of his tumor. I really want him better.  

Also I will run in honor of Jerry Pang - a friend from Tiburon Peninsula Club, who also has a brain tumor metastasized from a rare form of lung cancer. His 3cm tumor was discovered only days after Stevens. He had a gross resection @ Stanford Medical Center and is undergoing treatment on an outpatient basis. He's married and has a young son. 

 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. We need to find a cure. Its tax deductible!!

I would like to far surpass my goal so that we can really make a difference.  To make a donation, click on the "Donate" button to the right.

Thanks in advance for your support!
