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 12th year of survivorship and our 13th 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 RACE: Our team is excited to join forces with the National Brain Tumor Society. 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. The National Brain Tumor Society is committed to conquering and curing brain tumors — once and for all
