Head for the Cure

If you will be in Austin this Sunday, the 30th, please consider the Head for the Cure Central Texas 5K.

The Head for the Cure Foundation is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to raising awareness and funding in the fight against brain cancer. The 5K events are not only successful fundraisers, but unique tributes to those who are fighting brain cancer and those who have lost their battles. Their memories carry on through the teams that formed around them, and the teams return year after year to celebrate their legacies.

The Head for the Cure Foundation works with the Brain Tumor Trials Collaborative. BTTC was created as a network of medical centers with the expertise and strong desire to participate in state-of-the-art clinical trials investigating new treatments for malignant brain tumors.

Included in the BTTC are Dana Farber and MD Anderson. We spoke with oncologists at both of these institutions who were more than willing to share their expertise on Kai’s case. The oncologists and neurologists at Dana Farber, MD Anderson, Dell Children’s Medical Center, and St. Jude’s shared immense expertise while being honest and compassionate.

    We won’t be able to participate in the race, but would be happy to make a donation in Kai’s honor. Can you let me know who I can write a check out to and where to mail it?
    thanks!
