Hakuna Matata

As many of you know, Jessica Browning Schavone, was diagnosed with a grade 4 astrocytoma brain tumor at the end of 2023. The past few months have been a challenge for Jess and the family but through this all Jess has shown great strength and resilience! Jess has now completed her 33 radiation treatments at Duke and will receive targeted immunotherapy after. The annual Angels Among Us 5K/Walk of HOPE provides a large portion of the funding for the Duke Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center. Whether you plan to be in attendance of the 5K and/or Walk of HOPE or plan to cheer her on from afar, we appreciate you joining us in supporting Jess’ fight for HOPE!

The team name "Hakuna Matata" is from one of Cameron's favorite movies, The Lion King, which has been a staple of the household lately. As the song states, "it means 'no worries'." The phrase encourages us to enjoy life to the fullest and not worry about things we cannot control. This is the mantra Jess is showing us all is so important when facing the unknown!

If you are planning to attend the walk, we request that you purchase our Team t-shirt so we can show everyone at the walk just how BIG of a support system Jess has:

T-shirts will be shipped to Nick directly and will be handed out at the walk. If you order a shirt and do not attend the walk, we will reach out to you directly to ship the shirt to you!

Thank you for all of the support Jess, Nick, and the family have received through this journey, it means more than you know!
