Emily Cashel, 26 years old, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in August 2015. Ever since, her family, friends, and medical team at Memorial Sloan Kettering have not stopped fighting “Bartholomew the Tumor”. In a national celebration of friendship, life and health. We have four events - in San Francisco, DC, NYC Bryant Park and now in Boston(!) with the goal of raising more than $25,000 in order to allocate 100% of the funds raised to primary brain tumor research at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
Last year we were able to raise a whopping $64,000 and we can't thank enough our families and friends who contributed to this monumental achievement. This year, with the addition of our new team our goal is $70,000! Help us reach it!
Emily's journey is far from over. Like many other brain tumor patients, she has withstood surgery, radiation and chemo, current standard treatment, with the knowledge and hope that the future can and will bring a cure. It is an exciting and transformational time in cancer research with revolutionary treatments being developed such as immunology, gene targeting and rejiggering of polio viruses to name just a few. MSKCC is a leader in rare cancer research with primary brain tumors being one type of rare cancer. If the minimum of $25,000 is met, all money raised will go directly and quickly to fund primary brain tumor research at MSKCC, directly affecting Emily’s future along with so many others fighting this rare disease.
Please consider joining the team’s journey by contributing.
Thanks for the hope!
