This is all new to my wife and I, she has termial brain cancer and we've been envolved with Brad Kaminsky, since last year. We did the 5k walk and I was so proud of my wife that she did finish. It was tuff on her, but se felt so good to know she is not alone and there are people who care and that they want to find a cure to this terrible sickness!

When much of the country was getting ready to celebrate christmas and welcome the new year, my family received the worst news anyone could ever imagine...my brother was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme in december 2010. To make matters worse he lives in Ethiopia where healthcare is so primitive and there is no such thing as brain surgery, chemotherapy nor radiation.
It was during this dark time that I came across Brad Kaminsky Foundation and met the wonderful Lisa. She helped refer me to a Duke University Neurooncologist, who then directed me to a colleague in Thailand who welcomed my brother with open arms and helped get the treatment he needed.
My family and I are forever grateful for her love, prayer, dedication and unfailing support. She has been the light at the end of this long dark tunnel and glimmer of hope when I had none. My brother is having a wonderful quality of life because of her.
I pray that all her hard work will pay off when the cure for this horrible disease is found and she can stand with her head held high and make her brother Brad so proud to have a sister like her.

If it wasn't for Lisa, My brother would have been long gone by now.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
it is perfect the way it is. I would multiply it by 50, one for every state.
