THE STORY:

Hi Family and Friends,
So here I go again... training for the NYC Marathon. Last year in the middle of my training, I got the beautiful surprise of my little angel Christian. That was the end of the running :-) But I'm at it again.
My charity is the B'Cured Foundation which raises money for Brain Cancer research. This charity focuses on two causes very near and dear to me - cancer and the brain. I am fortunate enough to know the wonderful women who founded this charity and I am so happy to be a part of helping them find a cure for this terrible illness.
No amount of money is too small. Even a $1 donation will make a difference. Thank you so much in advance for your support!
Christina

B CURED wrote -

B*CURED builds awareness about brain cancer and funds research to develop a cure. Both the founders, Debbie and Melissa, lost a parent to glioblastoma, the most lethal and the most common form of brain cancer. In sharing our stories, we realized that there wasn't enough support for patients and their families, there weren't many promising treatment options and the survival rates were discouraging.

Our closest friends and several local neurosurgeons shared our vision and committed their talents to help get B*CURED off the ground. Now 2 years and 2 grants for cutting edge brain cancer research later, B*CURED is making important strides in the race to cure brain cancer.

We want to replicate the success of the breast and prostate cancer models where aggressive funding of research leads to early detection and an array of treatment options decreasing the toll of this devastating cancer. We will not rest until we cure brain cancer!

Our B*CURED ING NYC Marathon Team is dedicating their athletic and fundraising talents to get the word out and to fund more critical brain cancer research. They are awesome so please support them generously! Visit us at www.bcured.org - Debbie and Melissa
