Today we are officially kicking off our Brain Tumor Walk team; #lifewithabraintumor. May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and also happens to be Stephanie’s birthday month! - She has set up a birthday fundraiser with funds directed to Team #Lifewithabraintumor ! Come walk with us on June 23rd if you can! And, Please take a minute to read her brain tumor story and make a donation if you’re compelled. All proceeds go toward brain tumor research. Here’s Stephanie’s story;
“At 22 years old I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Colon Cancer, I was also diagnosed with a genetic disorder called Lynch Syndrome. At age 24 I was diagnosed with a Grade 2 Olegodendrumglioma brain tumor, that was caused by Lynch Syndrome. Lynch Syndrome is a genetic disorder that is passed down from either mother or father, it's a mutated miss-matched repair gene that makes you more succeptible to cancer and thats how I got my brain tumor, 1 in 279 people have Lynch Syndrome and only 5% know they have it. I am walking to help find a cure for brain tumors and also spread awareness about Lynch Syndrome for both patients and doctors!”
