You can either be sad and do nothing, or be sad and do something <3
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 October 7, I will rappel down the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
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. I learned this statistic first hand on December 22nd, 2010 when the doctors told me my father had less than a year to live. He had been fighting brain cancer for 5 years, and although he had undergone chemo and radiation, there werent any other options for his condition. He died two weeks later.
More research is desperately needed.
