Each year Head for the Cure invites you to Go Gray in May for Brain Cancer Awareness Month, and this week we are sharing inspiring stories about those igniting hope within the brain tumor community! At this year's 3rd Annual Head for the Cure - Columbus we will ignite hope and show support for all who have been impacted by a brain tumor diagnosis!
This terrible disease affects real people every day! Nicole, from Team Astrocyto-No-Mo, participates for her husband, Ronald who is a brain cancer survivor. This year she is working to bring together not only her family and friends, but the entire Columbus brain tumor community to help ignite hope for other brain cancer patients, their families, friends, caregivers, and other supporters!
Meet Team Astrocyto-No-Mo & Learn How They're Igniting Hope!
“Head for the cure already has a special place in my heart. It has been a beacon of hope for our family. It has given us something to look forward to during a season where fear of the unknown could consume us.
My husband and I have always used running as a way to bring us together as a family. Some of our favorite memories have been exploring new cities on runs while traveling.
After his brain tumor diagnosis (grade III anaplastic astrocytoma) in November 2019, my husband continued to run despite a major brain surgery, radiation treatment, and months of chemo. Running has helped us both get through some challenging times in the last few months. While there continue to be many unknowns in this world, running is our constant.
I decided to create a team for Head for the Cure with hopes of using running to inspire others fighting; to continue to fund research for brain cancer, and to celebrate life with friends and family!” - Nicole
YOU CAN HELP IGNITE HOPE!
Every Head for the Cure event marks a day of celebration where we honor and inspire hope for those diagnosed with a brain tumor, we remember those who have lost their battles and we are inspired to carry on the fight! During these difficult and challenging times, we could all use some stories of hope and positivity. The brain tumor community is lucky to have such amazing supporters who brighten the lives of those affected by this disease each and every day.
Show your support and ignite hope by registering for or donating to the 3rd Annual Head for the Cure - Columbus taking place on Sunday, August 9th! Even though we can't physically be together, we can still show those battling a brain tumor that NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE!
