Let's raise our voices in HOPE!
Guess what?! Team No Brain, No Pain is back for the 4th year! We are still fighting BKP!
We are excited to help raise money for much needed brain tumor research. Please consider donating what you'd spend on your morning coffee or a lunch out. Every little bit helps.
Paul was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2015. Since then, he has gone through three brain surgeries, 2 rounds of radiation, too many rounds of Avastin chemo to count, an eye surgery, and now etoposide chemo pills. It has been rough on Paul (and our family), but he has been 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 from awesome friends and family.
Paul's had an amazing care team, including:
- Kennestone neurosurgeon Dr. Benedict
- Duke neurosurgeon Dr. Friedmann
- Duke radiation oncologist Dr. Kirkpatrick
- Duke oncologist Dr. Peters
- Piedmont Cancer Center oncologist Dr. Dunbar and team
- Neuro-opthamologist Dr. Weiner
- Eye surgeon Dr. Lipsky (to help Paul's double vision)
You can participate by running (or walking) 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 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 generates awareness about this disease and will help to fund much needed brain tumor research.
Thanks for your support year after year!
