TL:DR So hey - this is a blatant appeal from your hard earned cash
Why should I donate to this?
Well, beyond that I am asking really really nicely? There is no reason. But hey maybe I can convince you.
Last September my uncle suddenly lost the ability to speak. This was of course worrying. The underlying cause turned out to be an aggressive brain tumor.
There has been a lot of surgery, a lot of chemo and a lot of medications. And the Tumors are coming back. This charity is to help fund research into brain tumors. You can help make a difference while my family punishes our bodies to raise a few dollars.
My cousins will be doing the marathons in Disney. I am not runner, my knees are done. I am however a skater, and I will be doing the same for the NYC Skate Marathon with my team come September.
I really am not holding out hope for my Uncle - the dates on his youngest daughters marriage we’re moved up to make sure he’d be there in May. Chances are this is the last summer I’ll have with him. That is the nature of this form of cancer. What I do know is that he is as ornery as anyone else in my family and will not give up without fighting.
The least I can do is fight to help fund the science and medicine that can help others in the future.
