I was 10 years old when I lost my mom to brain cancer, but this did not mean her fight was over. Not a day goes by where I do not think if her and the impact she had on me, my family, and everyone she met. When she was around, she found this small charity that was about to hold their very first Brain Tumor Walk in New York, and we went. Every year since, we have come together, as family and friends, and walked in her honor, even when she could could no longer do it herself. It was something I prided myself on. I even skipped the first day of summer camp so I could complete this tradition. So, as you can tell, due to the situation around us, the National Brain Tumor Walk in New York will most likely not happen. This does not mean I’m not walking. This Mother’s Day, I will proudly wear her brain cancer ribbon, and encourage everyone to take a walk in her honor. I am linking their website so you can virtually participate this weekend with me. Every year in the past, I would walk around school with a shoe box looking for donations, so this year, I encourage you to join Team Regina. Feel free to share this to your friends and family and join the fight. The National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists!
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. They are aggressively driving strategic research and advocating for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community. Your support ensures this important work will continue.
