Those at The Brad Kaminsky Foundation are beyond compare. Never have I come across someone like Lisa Millar and her father Alan Kaminsky that put so much into a cause. Over the years I have been a volunteer, a donor and a client served. Lisa is there for people in every capacity possible. Research, organizing fund raisers, awareness and support for those in need.

More than 100% of what they get goes back out there to find a cure for brain tumors because Lisa adds to everything she does. Her dedication to the cause is tireless and impressive and I feel honored to know her, her family and the great work they do.

Clone Lisa!! So she could be in front of even more people spreading the word and looking for a cure!!

I've volunteered for this foundation for the past 5 years. I don't know anyone that works harder and is more dedicated to the cause than Brad Kaminsky Foundation founder Lisa Millar. She not only works to raise awareness and money to fund research, but offers support and her knowledge to help those effected with Brain Cancer and their families, not only in her community, but globally. She works 24/7, out of her house, and unlike many charities, you can feel confident that when you donate to TBKF that all your money is going towards funding research.

I've worked for the Brad Kaminsky Foundation for the past three years. I lost my best friend to a brain tumor at the age of 20, and a few years later lost my mom to cancer that had spread to her brain. It is amazing to know that people like Lisa and organizations like the Brad Kaminsky Foundation exist. Lisa's drive and passion for the cause is what makes the organization so special. She made a promise to her brother that she wouldn't stop until a cure was found, and she has stuck to it, working around the clock not only creating fundraising events, but creating a national branding campaign to unite all Brain Tumor nonprofits together. I always joke with her that she can take anything and turn it into a way to get people involved, to spread awareness for this cause, and raise funds, but its true where there is a will there is a way with TBKF and Lisa. I commend her for all the incredible work she is doing, and am so thankful that I am able to say I am a part of this organization.

The Great!

Lisa has helped me along my own personal grief journey and taught me the power of continuing the fight for those who no longer can.

No changes to the organization. I hope that it continues to grow and the word continues to spread about this wonderful organization.

Lisa Kaminsky Millar has tirelessly supported this wonderful cause in the name of her brother who died of brain cancer. The way she brings people together to fight all types of brain cancer, both adult and pediatric is amazing and I applaud her. My family and I have done a few things to help support her fundraising efforts and we will push to do more in the coming years. We believe 100% in what she is doing and they way she is doing it...one event at a time.

Lisa Kaminsky Millar and I worked together many years ago in the hospitality industry, where we became friends as well as colleagues. There is no one quite like her: smart, organized, friendly, warm, energetic and helpful. I'm reminded of the phrase, "All men want to be with her, and all women want to be her". Lisa and I lost touch for several years, but when we reconnected, she told me how her brother had died at a tragically young age, and how she founded the Brad Kaminsky Foundation. I volunteered for an event and was totally impressed with how the event was organized. Everywhere I turned, people were singing Lisa's praises. I have offered to volunteer for other local events, and am even considering a trip to L.A. for the annual run. I would be remiss not to mention Lisa's wonderful husband and children, who support her completely, usually with a smile :-)

I first met Lisa at the gym right after her brother died of brain cancer. She was grieving but determined to do something concrete to prevent this from happening to anyone else. She had started The Brad Kaminsky Foundation to raise funds for research for this disease.
In 10 years she used her
marketing skills and MBA in business to do the following:
run races, run lemonade stands, organize kickboxing nights, coordinate Mardi Gras Casino Banquets, and direct beer tents at rock concerts. She does all of these things to raise money and awareness for pediatric and adult brain cancer while raising 3 children and managing a home.
She networks locally, nationally, and internationally with people who have run her races and who have a loved one with brain cancer.
I witnessed personally her calls to Duke University's neurosurgeons for consultations for patients she doesn't even know. She uses her connections to truly help people with this disease. She got patients appointments months ahead of their regularly scheduled consultations.
She always has time for anyone who needs her help or advice on moving the fight on cancer forward.
Even when her computer crashed for a month , she still was able to send thank you letters for checks received during that time.
Her brother, Brad, is her heavenly angel guarding her earthly efforts. She asks him for sunny weather for races when the forecast calls for rain. One time she got a huge rainbow at Dockweiler State beach amidst a storm as a sign of Brad's presence.

I have known Lisa Millar for 8 years. The first time I met her, she talked about her brother's death from brain cancer. She talked about her non-profit, TBKF, and how she wanted to raise money and awareness for brain tumors.
What blew me away was her idea to start a cookbook Cooking Up a
Cure, with recipes from people who have a connection to brain cancer.
She has raised almost 500,000 for brain cancer research through her Hope for Heroes race in Los Angeles.
I now work for her non-profit and she works tirelessly to see the day where brain cancer does not exist.

My wife and I have voluteered/sponsored this foundation for the last 5 years. We help as much as possible with the California main fundraising event Heroes Of Hope Race For Research, which is every first weekend in November. Lisa Millar is an amazing women who has committed her life to one sole purpose: HELPING OTHERS! 100% of the proceeds for the race go to funding research for Brain Cancer treatment and cures! It's an honor to be apart of this group and I HIGHLY recommend them for any business or group that is looking to sponsor faithful and worthly nonprofit organizations. God bless.

Lisa Kaminsky-Millar is an incredible worker who organizes many volunteers;including my wife and I; to help raise desperately needed funds for brain tumor research. For 10-plus years she has tirelessly given of herself to help others, like my daughter, Lisa Lewis Gibson,who was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Lisa worked tirelessly for the Brad Kaminsky Foundation before she died and we have picked up her battle for raising these needed funds.

Losing someone to this disease is a tragedy. In my heart, I know the Brad Kaminsky Foundation devotes so much to putting a stop to this nightmare. Being a part of this wonderful group has taught me how to learn to cope with the loss of a best friend and to make a real difference.

Lisa (Kaminsky) Millar is one of the most courageous women I have ever met! I feel extremely lucky to call her my friend and my inspiration. I am a 10 year brain cancer survivor (July 20, 2011) and I had the privilege of meeting Lisa last year at the The Brad Kaminsky Foundation race she hosts in Los Angeles every year to raise awareness and funds for brain tumor research. The contribution that Lisa is making through the creation of TBKF to help end brain cancer is extraordinary! Ever since my diagnosis back in 2001 I have dreamed of ways that I could give back to others the love, education, care, and tremendous support that I was given during my battle and she is doing exactly what i've envisioned! I am so proud of Lisa and so grateful that she has allowed me to help her help others!!! Thank you Lisa and TBKF for ALL that you have done and continue to do for families afflicted with brain cancer!!! I will forever be devoted to you!!!!! Love you!!
