After being diagnosed with a malignant, aggressive brain tumor in the spring of 2007, I have been determined to beat this desease. In the fall of 2007 I was invited to attend a brain tumor fundraising event in Minneapolis. From that year on, I have been attending, along with family and friends, the same event in hopes to someday find a cure for brain tumors. Feeling inspired by the event, I had a dream to start my own event closer to home in hopes of bringing together other individuals with brain tumors right here in our own surrounding area. It is a night to bring together individuals who have been struck by this disease and their family and friends and to share hope.
Why Gray? Gray is the color of the brain and also the symbol for brain cancer.
