Welcome to Alexis Schaaf's Personal Page
Dear Friends and Family -
I'm participating in the 18th annual Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation Race for Research on Saturday, September 16, 2017. It occurs at Central Park in Atlantic Station, located near downtown Atlanta. GA. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk, and even a Tot Trot. It is a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research. If you've not participated before, there's no time like the present.
I'll be running in memory of two amazing people - Anna Feyerherm (Team DenFeyer's namesake) and my husband, Michael Schaaf. Mike and I met Anna and Josh at the SBTF Brain Tumor Support Group, an amazing and free support group for brain tumor patients and caregivers. We clicked immediately and enjoyed getting to know one another, as well as providing more personal support to one another. Sadly, Mike and Anna have now both lost their lives to GBM, the most common and aggressive form of malignant brain tumor. Josh and I have continued to support one another through the terrible after-effects of the GBM diagnosis and I'm proud to support him in this race through his team - Team DenFeyer (Denham + Feyerherm).
You can also participate by running the race along with me, by donating toward my personal fundraising efforts, or by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many of the registrants are not runners. Instead many of the registrants are brain tumor patients who are just happy to be alive and happy to be able to participate in this event.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my request for support. I appreciate it.
Alexis (5K Participant) and Carey (Tot Trot Participant)
