This time last year Jen and I were counting down the days before our great trip to Hawaii. Thinking back, the prospect of the trip to Maui for Nathan and Melanie's wedding really provided a lot of energy for Jen during an exhausting stretch in her battle. Any sort of glimmer on the horizon for cancer patients in an indefinite, grueling routine of chemo has to be priceless.
I want to let you all know about a 5K run/walk coming up in early September. The race is called "Head for the Cure" and is held at Corporate Woods in Overland Park, KS. The race benefits the Head for the Cure Foundation which supports programs that research the cause and a cure for brain cancer. This Foundation also supports programs that help brain cancer patients and their families. I should mention that my father lost his mother, my grandmother, in 2005 to a very short battle with brain cancer. I plan on participating along with a friend that has recently suffered loss to this disease. If any of you are interested in participating as a team, let me know. Information on this foundation and the run can be found at www.headforthecure.org.
