No Brain, No Pain
Hi all! As you probably already know, Paul was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015 and has since gone through three brain surgeries, 6 weeks of radiation, and now is undergoing chemotherapy. We are excited to help raise money for much needed research.
We are running this race for Paul. He has been so incredible throughout this brain tumor journey. He rarely complains, has such a great attitude, and takes everything in stride. It means a lot to me that we've had so much support for Paul over the last few years.
Paul's had an amazing care team:
2 brain surgeries at Kennestone with our favorite local neurosurgeon Dr. Benedict
1 resection surgery by the renowned Dr. Friedmann at Duke
6 weeks at Duke for radiation with Dr. Kirkpatrick, also under the oncology care of Dr. Peters
The volunteers and staff at Duke's Caring House who allowed us to stay on site during radiation
Chemotherapy since March with the wonderful team of Dr. Dunbar at Piedmont Cancer Center
Frequent consults with neuro-opthamologist Dr. Weiner
Awesome friends and family who have supported us financially, emotionally, and spiritually
Please consider donating what you'd spend on your morning coffee or a lunch out. Every little bit helps.
We are participating in the 20th Annual Race For Research on Saturday, September 21, 2019 at Atlantic Station near downtown Atlanta. GA. It's a 5K run, 1K fun-run/walk and a fundraising event that raises money to support brain tumor research.
You can participate by running (or walking) the course route along with us, by helping me spread the word about this fundraising event, or by making a donation toward our fundraising effort. If you're not a runner, don't worry, many folks, including Paul, will be walking! Many participants 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.
Thanks for your support!
