In honor of my Father, Troy Abell, who passed through this life Sunday, May 24, 2015 after battling the most lethal form of cancer, glioblastoma multiforme for 5 1/2 years. In an effort to slay that beast, he was a patient at Duke University for the last year of his battle. My Dad was a known hard worker, whether on the farm or at Ford Motor Company. He loved his home and living in what he called, "Small Town USA." He enjoyed riding horses, ATVs, motorcycles, and basically anything he could steer. He also loved to tell stories and never meta stranger, thus leaving a list of friends too numerous to mention. He was a courageous fighter, loving husband to my Mother, Staci and my best friend that I got to call Dad for 28 years.
Though it may have taken me some time to grieve the loss of my Dad, I am now uniting with others to make a difference in the fight against brain tumors. I am passionate about this cause, so I’m taking action. I need your help in this fight. National Brain Tumor Society will not rest until a cure exists - but more needs to be done. Please join in my effort!
National Brain Tumor Society is fiercely committed to finding a cure for brain tumors. They are aggressively driving strategic research and advocating for public policies that meet the critical needs of the brain tumor community. Your support ensures this important work will continue.
