My 27 year old daughter, Alysha, fought Glioblastoma for 14 months. It was unexpected, of course. There is no cure and we just prayed she would be with us for as long as possible. Aly was a bright light in our lives. She was a animation/illustration artist, she was a loving sister, and a wonderful daughter. She was blessed to have a wonderful partner, Alan, during the last 3 years of her life – and especially during this terrible battle with this brain tumor.

I want to be part of this fight to find a cure for Brain Cancer. Aly always stayed positive until her last days here on earth. We know she is in no longer in pain, she’s keeping us all positive as we continue our journey here on earth. I would like more exposure to others about the need for a cure for brain cancer. We need to raise money for more research dollars so that no other families will not suffer a loss of a loved one.

Thank you for supporting the Brain Cancer Walk.
