Why my Camino de Santiago sojourn? A couple of years ago some friends shared that their son was suffering from a neuroendocrine tumor. These tumors can occur anywhere in the body where endocrine cells exist, including the pancreas, intestines, lungs, and brain. In the case of my friends’ son, it was his brain. The initial news was devastating to all as you can imagine. However, the great blessing is that he eventually got through it. At the time, I wanted to be supportive and do a fundraiser to raise awareness about the groundbreaking research that was, and is, being done at UCLA Neurosurgery, though I was not able to do it until now.
I completed my walk on October 1st, 2017. I would like to keep raising money and plan to keep my fundraising page open. Whether you can donate $10 or $100, it all counts. All funds are distributed through the Network For Good and the UCLA Foundation.
Thank you. Love, Maria
