Raising Hope- May was Brain Tumor Awareness Month!

Posted by : admin | On : June 6, 2012

May was Brain Tumor Awareness Month and I was very busy spreading awareness.  On May 3rd, we held our 4th Annual CBTF Young Professionals Group Bowl-a-Thon fundraiser. Thanks to over 100 volunteers and fundraisers we raised over $44,000 for the Children’s Brain Tumor Foundation. The funds were put directly to good use to send young adult & teen survivors to Camp Make-a-Dream in Montana. A week later, on May 16th, CBTF held its 10th Annual Dream & Promise Awards Benefit Gala. As a board member of CBTF, it was a great honor to see so many people who were passionate about this important cause come together for this great fundraiser. Once again, CBTF raised around $1,000,000 to support our mission to improve the treatment, quality of life and the long term outlook for children with brain and spinal cord tumors through research, support, education, and advocacy to families and survivors.

On May 19th I was invited by fellow brain tumor survivor/hero, Rick Franzo, as guest speaker at Catch the Brain Wave Brain Tumor Awareness fundraiser in the Poconos. You can see my full speech below:
