Welcome to My Personal Page
For the last 7 years we have joined the Race for Hope to fight for patients living with brain tumors/brain cancer and to honor those whose cure did not come soon enough. This is a very personal fight because as many of you know, my son Bobby, who is now 26, and whose smile lights up even the darkest day, is surviving and fighting brain cancer. Bobby is determined to live each day to the fullest with a smile on his face and compassion in his heart. He not only reminds me not to worry, he is honest when he says he is very happy and he loves his life - he is stronger than anyone I know, and I doubt I will ever meet another person with his spirit and positivity. But Bobby knows he can depend on his brothers, his grandparents, his friends and of course his parents to stand next to him as he fights each day.
Bobby's hope and strength and determination has allowed him to defy all the odds and live his life. He is focused on his health and his work; he is passionate about his work and strong in his commitment to bring a sense of peace and hope to his clients.
Team Hope Brings Strength has raised nearly $150,000 over the past six years and although I was not able to cross the finish line the last few years because of injuries, I will do my best to cross it this year with friends and family joining me in this cause. I will continue to push myself so that all those with this dreadful disease can find hope to fight and to remember those who have lost their battle.
Bobby's tumor still exists, my heart is broken and so I will NOT rest until I know there is a cure. The National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists. Please join me as Hope Brings Strength runs the Race for Hope 2020! Thank you for your support!
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. They are aggressively driving strategic research; advocating for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community; and providing comprehensive patient, family and caregiver resources. Your support ensures this important work will continue.
