Sean's Squad participates in memory of Sean Lamprey. Sean passed away on November 21, 2017, after a courageous sixteen year fight with brain cancer. Sean was diagnosed during his freshman year in college at the University of Georgia. He had several surgeries, biopsies, radiation, and chemotherapy over the years. Sean always had a positive attitude and a smile on his face. You never would have known he had a brain tumor, except for his surgery scar. Sean was a fighter, and it was devastating for his family to see him rapidly decline over the course of just a few months. Sean lived a full life up until August of 2016, when his tumor recurred, and came back in a very aggressive form. Our mission is to raise awareness and funds for research into the treatment of brain tumors of all kinds, particularly oligodendroglioma and anaplastic astrocytoma, the types that afflicted Sean. Please help us honor his memory!
I'm participating in the 18th annual Race Ror Research which occurs on Saturday, September 16, 2017 at Central Park in Atlantic Station; located near downtown Atlanta. GA. It is a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event which raises money to support brain tumor research. If you've not participated before, there's no time like the present.
You can participate by running (or walking) the course route along with me, by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event, or by making a donation toward my fundraising effort. 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.
Just so you know, the Southeastern Brain Tumor Foundation is recognized as as a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit organization and as a public charity. Donations to the SBTF in support of my fundraising efforts are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law. Your support will have a positive impact on the life of a brain tumor patient because it generate awareness about this disease and will help to fund much needed brain tumor research.
Sadly, many of us don't realize how scary a brain tumor diagnosis is until someone we know is told "you have a brain tumor" or "you have brain cancer".
Oh, and one more thing, did you know you can double your donation through employer matching programs? Be sure to check with your Human Resources Department to determine if your company will match your donation. If they say yes, you can double your donation with just a few clicks of your mouse.
