Thank you for visiting Clara's Angels! Our team has been reactivated for 2021 in support of the Tisch Braing Tumor Center at Duke and we hope you will join us!
Clara's story began when she went to the hospital to deliver Abby (who happily just celebrated her 8th birthday). As you might imagine, the joy of welcoming a baby to the family was tragically impacted with the diagnosis of a brain tumor.
Clara found her way to the expert and caring team at Duke where she was specifically diagnosed with gliobastoma multiforme or GBM and began an aggressive battle against brain cancer. She endured radiation and chemotherapy and then enrolled in a clinical trial to boost her immune response to the cancer. She completed her treatment officially in April 2015 and continues to stay in close contact with her caregivers at Duke while reaching out to show her love and support for other patients.
We are blessed and amazed by Clara’s health and the work continuing at Duke and remain grateful for all support. Although the date for 2021 is not yet set due to Covid, we hope you will join us. Pandemic or not, patients at Duke need our help and we are very thankful for each of you!
