In April 2018 our family and friends participated in the Annual Angels Among Us 5K Walk of HOPE in Durham, NC. In April 2019 John decided to move his fundraising efforts to Roanoke instead and run the Blue Ridge Marathon! His fellow runners supporting him were his girlfriend, Emily and his brother-in-law, David (who did the double marathon). I thought this was a one and done but they have decided to repeat this year and Kathleen is joining them (and David is doing the double AGAIN). Meredith will be here until race day to pump up the team! The marathon marks almost to the day John was diagnosed three years ago. Duke has been a source of strength, courage and hope for him and our family where he has received excellent treatment. The proceeds from Angels Among Us go directly towards research and clinical trials for brain tumors at The Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke. We are so grateful for the care John receives from Duke and want to support them in furthering the research and care for him and others. “At Duke, There is Hope” is their motto and has become ours.
Nancy, Meredith, Kathleen, David, John and Emily (and always Walt)
