When Jori's dad was diagnosed with a glioblastoma in February of 2015, he was given about 10-12 weeks to live. The UC BrainTumor Treatment Team (along with the Duke Tisch Brain Tumor Center) made a huge difference as John fought this dreadful disease. Their guidance helped our entire family get through an incredibly difficult experience. Even though John eventually lost his battle in November 2016, he was able to see more milestones than we originally expected. Those bonus 18 months and my desire to find a cure are why I am participating in the October 21st Walk Ahead event at Sawyer Point in downtown Cincinnati. I want to do whatever I can to support The UC Brain Tumor Center and its mission to find effective treatments and, eventually, a cure.
Please take a minute and consider donating to this worthy cause. I truly believe there will be a cure for cancer within my lifetime.
P.S. - The pic on this page was taken about two weeks before John passed away. It is the last picture I have of us together. You can only see the cropped version, but we just sat down for shabbat dinner, with my family, Lisa and their best friends from California. John gave Jori and I one last shabbat blessing.
