The Brainstormers

"The Brainstormers" team will be participating in Angels Among Us for the fifth year to again include a new friend met along the way in this journey.  This year the team will be participating in honor of Stacie Phillips and Ben Fishman. Stacie met Ben while rock climbing in Colorado in 2017 (though they unknowingly shared the stage at Angels Among Us in 2017 as well). 

Stacie was diagnosed with Brain Cancer in 2014 and then had a reoccurence of GBM in 2017.  After two successful surgeries, radiation and ongoing chemotherapy, Stacie and her family are looking forward to a fifth year at Angels Among Us.  This past year Stacie took a 26 mile hike in the  Spring to raise funds for Make A Wish and another trip rock climbing in Colorado.   At Duke, there really is HOPE!

Ben was diagnosed with GBM in 2014 and ran his first 5K at last year's Angels Among Us. He met Stacie last August while rock climbing in Colorado in a program for young adult cancer survivors through First Descents. That was the second most challenging/exciting thing that happened to him.  Ben's daughter, Mira Belle, was born in December of 2017

Join Stacie and Ben along with their family and friends on Saturday, April 27, 2019 and help support the fight against Brain Cancer.
