Welcome to My Personal Page
This is the 16th year that my family and friends have participated in the Race for Hope. We're driven by the memory of my daughter, Joyce Stankiewicz, who was just 39 when she was diagnosed as terminally ill with brain cancer. She faced the awful reality that she would not be able to watch her three children grow up. I hope you will help honor and remember the many brave souls who have faced this awful disease. Please give whatever you can afford to fund brain tumor research so that one day there will be effective treatments that will save lives.
Over 25,000 Americans will be diagnosed with brain cancer this year, and 16,000 of them will die of it. The 5-year survival rate is less than 5% for a Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM), the most common form of brain cancer that killed Joyce. Brain cancer is also the number one cancer killer of children under the age of 14. Help us find a cure so that if someone you love is diagnosed, they will survive this disease.
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.
