Glioblastoma Awareness Day July 20th

Glioblastoma Awareness Day is July 20th and where we bring people and families impacted by glioblastoma (GBM) into the spotlight in our fight against this monster of a tumor. I am shining the light and sharing with you, a three-minute video about my son Derek and our family’s brain cancer journey. PLEASE click on the video and take three minutes to watch.

I hope you watch the video and feel moved to share within your circles and encourage people to help support us in this fight. You can:

· Purchase my book on Amazon where proceeds go right back into my advocacy work.

· Join our D-Rex Defenders Team with Angels Among Us, click on the link and donate. . All proceeds go directly to the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke for brain cancer research. It is never too early to join our team!

· Donate to the National Brain Tumor Society @NBTS so they can continue their calls to action with Congress for the funding needed for critical research that can bring clinical trials and hope and in honor and memory of my son Derek and the thousands of people and families impacted by this disease.

Angel Oak Creative, gifting our family this video will help keep Derek’s heartbeat and his memory alive as we continue our fight against brain cancer. Your name is fitting, you are angels, and words alone cannot describe our heartfelt gratitude.

Dr. Desjardins and all the Duke docs, you are our heroes and warriors, standing toe to toe every day fighting against this horrific disease and giving hope to thousands of people.

Telling Derek's story continues to be the hardest part of my grief journey and it is also the most important part of my grief journey. Thank you for your continued love and support.

Much love,

Derek’s family
