Welcome to my 2021 ASICS Falmouth Road Race Page!
I am so excited to have the opportunity to run the Falmouth Road Race for the National Brain Tumor Society in honor of my brother, Brian. Brian is a 12.5 year brain cancer SURVIVOR! Brian was diagnosed with a GBM (a grade 4 malignant brain tumor) in November of 2008 and given the prognosis of 18 months to live. He had brain surgery to remove the tumor and then participated in a clinical trial at Duke University where he underwent chemotherapy and radiation. In addition, he radically changed his diet and exercise and completed his first (of three!) marathon in 2010.
I first got involved fundraising for the National Brain Tumor Society in 2009, just 6 months after his diagnosis. I participated in the Boston Brain Tumor bike ride. I have participated in this ride for the past twelve years and our since forming our team in 2009, we have raised over $211,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society! Funds raised here help to direct promising research, support families who are currently coping with the effects of a brain tumor diagnosis, and advocate for change. I have joined this movement to bring the issue of brain tumors to the forefront. Progress is being made, but there is so much more to be done.
Thank you for your support. Every little bit helps! Together we can make a difference!
