When Luke was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor in July 2022, we had no idea where the next months would take us. Brain cancer is notoriously difficult to treat - only 36% of patients survive 5 years post-diagnosis and the most common type of brain cancer (GBM) has an average survival time of just 8 months. Despite leading to the deaths of many people in the prime of their lives, brain tumor research is greatly underfunded.
Please join us in raising money for brain tumor research and education and to provide ongoing support of the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, where Luke has received his treatment.
We would also love to have you join us for the Walk of HOPE in Durham, NC, on Saturday, April 22nd where we can walk together to celebrate Luke's successful surgery and treatment so far, to recognize the hard-working and innovative doctors and nurses and researchers who work to fight this awful disease, to honor and remember those who have had their lives cut short by brain cancer, and to offer hope for all of those whose lives are touched by brain cancer.
