As some of you know my parents, Sandy and Jean are on the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Advisory Board at Duke. You may also know that both my grandfathers died of glioblastoma brain tumors, a very rare but deadly brain tumor.
Every year Duke sponsor the Angels Among Us Walk/Run. It is an integral part of raising money to help fight this devastating disease. We are sure you know someone who is or has dealt with a brain tumor. The brain tumor program at Duke is the best in the world. The diagnosis of a glioblastoma was once a death sentence but because of Duke's amazing team, it is now a diagnosis that finally has the word "hope" attached to it.
Again this year, my parents have formed a team, Costa's Crusaders and we are writing to you with an invitation to join us.
The Angels Among Us Race is Saturday, April 28, 2018. It's a lot of fun so if you're in the area, please consider coming. If you can't attend. please consider a donation.
