Jim Abels' Fight With Brain Cancer and Brain Tumor Walk
Earlier this year I was diagnosed with a low grade glioma. I decided to have my brain surgery at Memorial Sloan Kettering in NYC. The surgery was performed by Dr. Moss and the tumor was successfully removed! I followed it up with chemo and radiation at my local hospital, Community Medical Center here in Toms River, NJ. At this point, I am cancer free but still finishing off my treatment with 6 months of maintenace chemo. Many thanks to my wonderful girlfriend, my family and supporters that helped me through this tragedy!
Now I want to give back and help raise money and awareness for brain tumor research. I know that they need help as there isn't as much studies as with other kinds of cancer and there is a long way to finding a cure. Brain Tumor research is the MOST UNDERFUNDED cancer today. I am very lucky tthat I had a low grade tumor because high grade tumors like a glioblastoma give people 6 months to 2 years to live. Sadly, my mother passed at age 62 due to having a Glioblastoma. She ended up getting 2 surgeries and lived longer than they expected. I will never forget her and want to help get more support for treatments in brain cancer. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I need your help in this fight. I would like your help by either joining our team and walking with us or by donating through our link! The National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
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.
