BENEFITING: B CURED
ORGANIZER: B CURED
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I am running my first marathon to honor and support Kathryn Clauss, my mother-in-law, who has been bravely battling brain cancer since she was diagnosed with a glioblastoma this past February. Please support me and the rest of the B*CURED team as we strive (and run, and run) to broaden awareness about brain cancer and to fund research grants leading to a cure.
Thank you so much for your support.
B*CURED funds vital brain cancer research. We do it because many of us lost a parent, a spouse, or a beloved friend to this devastating disease. Every day 550 people in the US will be diagnosed with a brain tumor and because there are 120 different types and because it is the brain, it can be complicated to treat. Survival rates from brain cancer are depressingly low.
B*CURED aims to change this story. We provide grants to innovative scientific research at leading medical institutions like Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Yale, Columbia, Mass General, and more; 8 research grants to date in our 5 year existence. We bring more brain power to the fight against brain cancer.
