Glioblastoma Awareness Day July 19th

Glioblastoma Awareness Day, July 19th: #GBMday

My dear son,

It has been over four long years, and I miss you more with each passing day. I miss your smile, your smell, your hugs that only a momma gets. I miss watching you (D-Rex) make your music; the outrageous energy that radiated from you after you finished a song and blasted it until the pictures in the room vibrated until they fell to the floor. I miss watching you and your sister just being together, talking and laughing. I miss all of you.

Here is a two-minute video to see the beautiful person that glioblastoma (GBM) snatched from our family

GBM is the most common, least treatment resistant and deadliest malignant brain tumor. Over 700,000 Americans in the USA are living with a primary brain tumor, 94,000 Americans are diagnosed with a primary brain tumor each year, including more than 5,000 children. Approximately 19,000 people will die from a malignant brain tumor in 2023, roughly 10,000 of them will be from GBM. This is unconscionable.

Please support us in the fight to cure brain cancer by joining our D-Rex Defenders Team. Thank you!

All my love son,
