Team Oligo

Welcome!

For a sixth year, we are combining forces with other families who are survivors or have lost loved ones to Oligodendroglioma. We are committed to the NBTS's wonderful work in the unique Oligodendroglioma Research Fund.    

The Oligo Fund was created to "support promising research specifically targeted at creating new treatments for oligodendroglioma (oligo) while leveraging the scientific expertise and proven process of the National Brain Tumor Society."

We are so excited to be walking in support of this Fund. 100% of what we raise will go to the Fund. If you, or someone you love, has an Oligodendroglioma, this is the most focused fund-raising you'll ever be able to do to help.

This year we continue to feel the importance of this Fund personally. It has been such a hard year for us, as we lost our beloved Tanya Seidel to her brain tumor. Words cannot express our sorrow.  So ... we walk.  We pray.  We raise our hearts and voices and plea for a cure. Additionally, one of our captains continues this year in exhausting, rigorous, active treatment. What we're doing is essential -- it is vital to our lives! And in the last year we've begun to see such promising research begin for Oligos (yes, begun...).

Please join us!  You can join our team at any time.  And if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail Brett (brettrandalljohnson@gmail.com) or Sara (sara.panzeri@gmail.com) or Steve (smcnally@vicr.com).

Thank you!
