Welcome to Amy's Personal Page to fight Brain Tumors
My family and I have been part of the Long Island Brain Tumor Walk since the annual event started in 2014. Each year, we come together as Team Cal's Crusaders to honor of the memory of my father, Cal Kitay who passed away from a glioblastoma, just three days shy of his 67th birthday.
When my father was diagnosed with his brain tumor, his life was never the same again. Side effects from his surgery left a weakness in the right side of his body where he had issues doing simple tasks such as writing, tying his shoes, and he needed a walker to help get around. His brain tumor returned a year later in an inoperable part of the brain because his treatments had to cease due to his body wouldn't accept the chemotherapy drug. In addition to my father's battle with his glioblastoma , the events of this past year made it even more evident why even more research is needed to fight this horrible disease. I personally saw the difference in the side effects and the drug and treatment options when it comes to other cancers in comparison to what was available to my father during his 13 month battle with brain cancer.
To honor my father's memory, I registered to fundraise for the National Brain Tumor Society's (NBTS) Fall Challenge: Miles for Milestones because I am passionate about the NBTS mission to conquer and cure brain tumors — once and for all. NBTS needs your support. After a year like no other, supporting this mission is more critical than ever. No donation is too small. With your help, we can make a difference in the lives of those living with a brain tumor. Thank you for your support and please consider tuning in as we honor this community on October 17th.
