Welcome to My Personal Page
Time does not heal all wounds. Time helps us fall into a “new normal”, but it does not take away our pain. Brain Cancer took my husband from us. On his 48th birthday he was given a diagnosis that would turn our lives upside down. Glioblastoma. He was given a median survival rate of 15 months. He rolled up his sleeves and prepared to fight. He took all sorts of aggressive treatments and therapies to buy time with us. The cancer was stronger and smarter than all the treatments. Brain Cancer steals a person’s independence, dignity and their chance of a future with loved ones. It does not discriminate age, sex, race, health, or tax bracket.
I've been robbed of a future with my husband. I want to bring awareness so that future generations don’t need to lose their loved ones this way.
My husband lost his father to Brain Cancer in 2015 (Tumors metastacized from Gastric Lymphoma), and now my children lost their father to Glioblastoma in 2018. The doctors say that there is no genetic link between the 2 cancers. I say “How can lightning strike my house twice?” I can not protect my children and future generations if the medical world doesn’t know how to fight aggressive brain cancer.
Join us in raising awareness of Brain Cancer. We’re participating in the Bay Area Brain Tumor Walk at the San Francisco Zoo on June 14, 2020. You can join our team and walk with us or you can support us virtually.
National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
Thankful for anyone taking the time to read this! Grateful for those that can help me raise awareness.
