Todd & Rose Interview
Meet Todd & Rose. Todd is a spinal cord tumor survivor; an ependymoma, to be exact. That's a pediatric brain tumor over 95% of the time. To be diagnosed as an adult is a 1/1,000,000 chance. With those odds, Todd should play the lottery more often.
Life for Todd & Rose forever changed nearly 20 years ago with Todd's diagnosis. And one thing that changed is that Todd & Rose are two of our greatest ambassadors - we couldn't be more honored! Thank you, Todd & Rose!
Love my Parents! I'm so grateful that at 78 & 79 they made the trip to MN for our Annual Walk Event for brain & spinal cord tumors. Not only were they proud parents, but also volunteers helping with raffles and merchandise sales.
I know they would much rather be at this event for any other reason than their daughter had a spinal cord tumor. It was a blow to not just me and my husband, but also our families. I also know my parents have felt helpless through out my surgery and recovery - a pain that is hard to overcome. So their support at our Annual Walk Event was just the help this girl needed.
Kathy and Tom - Why Walk?
Why did Tom and I decide we needed to do this event every year?
Because my rare tumor diagnosis made us feel alone. And no one should feel alone as they navigate the waters after a life changing diagnosis. We should feel a sense of connection with others - with a community that understands what our "new normal" will/can be.
Because life is all about the Power of Personal Connection.
