I'm going over the edge for brain cancer research!
Dear Friends and Family,
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 27, I will rappel down the Hyatt Regency Crystal City.
I am dedicated to fight this deadly disease. As a child I had an episode of grand mal seizures which fortunately for me turned out to be benign and temporary in origin. For many others, arriving at the hospital with seizures does not lead to so fortunate a diagnosis. Moreover, two of my close relatives had their lives cut short by brain cancers.
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!
