Friends of Mike
I've recently become connected with Voices Against Brain Cancer, a great advocacy group with a wide variety of initiatives for brain cancer research, awareness and support. I'll be participating in their Annual Join the Voices Against Brain Cancer Run/Walk, to be held on Sunday, December 2, 2012 in New York's Central Park.
I've always been reluctant to ask friends and family to participate in any such cause, but I'm making an exception here. I've learned that brain cancer research is underfunded and brain cancer awareness really needs to be raised. So...Here's how to participate with us in this event. If you'd like to run/walk, click "Join a Team" (above, on the left) and search our team name "Friends of Mike" and click join (to the left in the search results). We'd love for anyone to be with us in Central Park. To make a donation, if you are so inclined, the easiest way is to click the "Support Friends of Mike" link to the right, under the photo of us. Our team is called "Friends of Mike", stealing (with permission) from the custom winter hats line lovingly designed and made by Erin Krantz and Frieda Taylor.
The event is honoring Dr. Andrew Lassman, who has been heading my medical team at Columbia. I will also be honored with an award at the event.
Thanks for any participation and support you can give.
