Race For Hope DC

Team Kick Astrocytoma

We are so grateful for your support of our family and for investing in the research that has lead to and will continue to enhance treatment for everyone affected by brain tumors. We are excited to celebrate Ryan's 10th year of survivorship and our 11th year of participation in the Race for Hope.

RYAN'S STORY: Ryan was diagnosed with a right frontal lobe astrocytoma brain tumor on January 6, 2011 at the age of 26. Ryan had five crainiotomies, including two tumor resections. He experienced infection multiple times and subsequently went without a bone flap (with a not-so-stylish cranial helmet) for 12 weeks to complete radiation/chemotherapy. He then completed 11 monthly cycles of chemotherapy. Ryan continues to KICK ASTROCYTOMA.

THE 2021 RACE: Our team is excited to join forces with the National Brain Tumor Society by participating in the first ever National Brain Tumor Walk and Race for Hope-DC in honor of Brain Tumor Awareness Month. Please support our efforts by either registering to join our team or consider making a donation to one of our team member's fundraising efforts. While we continue to navigate living in a virtual space, we are reminded of the benefit it provides; YOU can support this year's event and take part in the program on May 2nd from anywhere in the world! The National Brain Tumor Society is committed to conquering and curing brain tumors — once and for all
