Walk for Rorke
Thank you for supporting investments in research and advocacy for people experiencing brain tumors!
Our family has lost a lot to glioblastoma, the most common, treatment-resistant, and deadliest form of adult brain cancer: my grandmother, my dad, and my cousin Thomas. We lost years upon years upon years of time. We were cheated of milestones and holidays and the rhythm of family life.
But we also gained hope. With each generation, we got more time. Investments in research to improve imaging technologies, surgical techniques, treatments, and medications have improved the length and quality of life for patients with GBM. It's still a fatal disease, but I know it won't always be.
With more investment, we can give each next family more time to live a normal life and make memories big and small. And we can count on a day when GBM is manageable and survivable.
The National Brain Tumor Society supports research, treatment options, and advocacy for more federal investment into glioblastoma and dozens of other types of brain tumors. They're a critical part of finding better treatments, and, eventually, a cure.
On October 1st, team Walk for Rorke will meet at Jones Beach to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society's necessary work. I hope you'll join us in our goal to make life better and longer for GBM patients and all brain tumor patients and their families.
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.
