2010 marathon

As you know I was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2008. I was fortunate in that I was set up with a brilliant doctor/surgeon. He heads a research group that is responsible for some of the methods that help to control and treat brain tumors. I have gone to their lab and sat in on their meetings. I am confident that this group will ultimately find a cure for brain tumors.
Brain tumors require different treatment methods than other forms of cancer. That is why it is important that specialized research groups get funds and donations directly. My surgeon Dr. Alfredo QuiƱones-Hinojosa, is a member of a research team at Johns Hopkins which works towards developing innovative methods for treating brain tumors. Further information about the group can be found at:
Once again I will be running the Baltimore Marathon and I am asking that people make donations and sponsor me in my race. I will be accepting donations well after the actual race.
Thank again for all your support.
