Support research for glioblastoma multiforme
Among brain tumors, glioblastoma multiforme is a death sentence for anyone who gets it: malignant, terminal and incurable. At best, those diagnosed with this cancer generally live about a year and a half.
I know this because one of my relatives died from this type of cancer. He was only 42 and left behind three children. His fight was the bravest thing I've ever seen.
Since my relative's death six years ago, I've learned more about glioblastoma, including that it's affected baseball. A number of prominent players have died from glioblastoma in recent years including Gary Carter, Dan Quisenberry, Tug McGraw, Bobby Murcer and Johnny Oates.
We live in a society that's cured many major afflictions, but not this one. I'd like to help change this. All donations through this fundraiser will benefit the American Brain Tumor Association, supporting research and raising awareness for this most deadly of cancers.
