Every day, nine more children are diagnosed with a brain tumor. Brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer death in children. Symptoms of brain tumors include headaches, nausea, vomiting, seizures, and disturbances in vision and hearing.
As a parent, it is frustrating to see your child lose their childhood to hospital stays and treatments. It is infuriating to hear from doctors that there is nothing they can do. Please help these families that are enduring this pain at this moment.
In the summer of 2005 Claire was diagnosed with a brain tumor. We feel strongly that efforts of organizations like PBTF contributed to her quick diagnosis and hence recovery. Claire is now over 6 years out. It has been a long road, and it's great to make it to the end. I wish all families could have such peace.
Please support Claire in the 2012 Ride for Kids. Besides being a great fund raising event, it's a fun day for the kids and families and we enjoy participating every year.
