Team Amazing Joe

Our team is participating in the 2011 Seattle Brain Cancer Walk benefiting the Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at the Swedish Neuroscience Institute. You might be wondering why we are walking for Brain Cancer. 100% of the walk proceeds go directly to patient care and research.

  • We will walk because each year, 220,000 Americans – 1,200 in the Pacific Northwest – are diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. With limited treatment options and a life expectancy of only one to two years, brain cancer is a frightening disease to face. 
  • We will walk to help increase the life expectancy of anyone diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.
  • We will walk to honor and support someone who is has a family member with brain cancer.
  • We will walk because our family has been impacted by this terrible cancer.
  • We will walk for Joe. Joe was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2007. The tumor was removed and  the cancer can come back.  Joe lost his fight in May of 2010. 
  • We will walk because we know if the roles were reversed Joe would be walking with us and then for us.  
Please consider joining us this year by donating or signing up for our team. You don't have to be local to participate you can be a virtual walker. Every person who runs, walks, donates or volunteers is helping make a positive impact on brain cancer research. If you are local and would like to join our team you are more then welcome, just sign up and email me at runnermaybe @

Donations can be made at our team site - Amazing Joe.
