Welcome to My Personal Page
Welcome to my fundraising page for Team Karen! 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.
Since that awful diagnosis day in January 2004, I've made it through three craniotomies, 30 rounds of radiation, and months of chemotherapy. Over many seasons of watching The Amazing Race with my family, rappelling is one of the few challenges I think I could do. Although it's totally out of my comfort zone, I'm going to do it! I will send myself over the edge of a hotel for all of those people living with this awful disease, and for those like family friend Cheryl McCumber, who have died from brain cancer.
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.
Thanks in advance for your support!
