Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my fundraising page! I’ve committed to raise $6,000.00 to benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through Accelerate Brain Cancer Cure. The most exciting part is, all the money raised will benefit those in need suffering from brain cancer or those that might encounter this terrible disease in the future.
On behalf of my nephew Troy White a husband of 25 years and father of two beautiful daughters who has suffered from Brain Cancer since 2003, I am dedicated to fight this deadly disease. There are almost 700,000 people living with brain tumors and about 80,000 more will receive a primary brain tumor diagnosis this year. Despite the amount of brain tumors, and their devastating prognosis, there have only been four (4) FDA approved drugs to treat brain tumors in the past 30 years. More research is desperately needed.
Troy was initially diagnosed with Stage-3 brain cancer in 2003. After surgery, and removing a tumor, the size of a Mans Fist, Troy received chemo and radiation. He BEAT CANCER and learned he was in remission! However, in April 2016, Troy was diagnosed with a very large Brain Bleed. This bleed would have killed most people, but Troy had such a large hole in his Brain from the last tumor that was removed, so there was plenty of room for swelling. Troy had a second Craniotomy to remove another tumor and learned that he had Stage 4 recurring malignant neoplasm-glioblastoma. After 3 months of Radiation and Chemo, Troy learned that his tumor was not responding to treatment. After many consults with specialists at MD Anderson, Troy was referred to Duke University and was accepted into a Medical Trial at Duke University. This is a great example of how research is helping many people. Instead of removing the tumor, the tumor was injected with the Polio Virus on February 2, 2017, and he has had an awesome response to this therapy. This procedure allows Troy’s immune system to attack the tumor and dissolve the tumor. By July 2017, the tumor was reduced in size by 80%, and thank God and great Research Troy continues to improve.
Thanks in advance for your support
