As we know, he is so very humbled by the support you provide us to continue to help others in his name.
Should you know of anyone fighting a brain tumor, and needing assistance for travel expense, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request an application.
Our huge gratitude for the children who believe in our mission so much so that they devote their “National Lemonade Day” to promoting Brain Tumor Awareness. Truly inspirational to see the impact one person can make just by being “ordinary.” To see one man inspire not only a community, but the hearts of our youth gives such great hope. Thank you for allowing us to give back. May his legacy continue to prosper.
