Welcome To Karen Hickman's Fundraising page
Welcome to my fundraising page! I’ve committed to raise funds to benefit cutting-edge brain cancer research through ABC2 by rappelling down the side of a building! On December 9, 2018 I will rappel down the Manchester Grand Hyatt, the largest building on the San Diego waterfront. The most exciting part is, all the money raised for this event will be channeled to San Diego-based research projects.
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.
This year I am going to dedicate my rappel to my dear neighbor Fran McCloskey who passed away this past February from a short battle with brain cancer. I've also had a high school friend pass away recently. This disease continues to take more and more lives quickly.
Thanks in advance for your support!
