Welcome to Tiffany's Team team page. This is our seventh annual participation in the Race for Research.
Tiffany was diagnosed with a grade 3 anaplastic astrocytoma in May 2014. Tiffany continues her fight every day but has been blessed by God with great health since she concluded her treatment in February 2015. From our our time at the Hillman Cancer Institute at UPMC Hospital in Pittsburgh to where we are now at the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory Hospital here in Atlanta, we have been very thankful for many doctors, nurses, family, and friends who have helped Tiffany throughout her journey.
At the time of Tiffany's diagnosis in 2014, we weren't sure if children were in our future due to the relatively unknown relationship between pregnancy and brain tumors. However, after talking with doctors at various hospitals, we decided to try for a family. God works in amazing ways and blessed us with our daughter, Cecilia, in May 2022 and our son, James, in June 2023. We are very thankful for the doctors and nurses at Emory Johns Creek who assisted and cared for Tiffany and our children for both deliveries.
We look forward to participating in this Race for Research annually (and hope you will help us too by participating in the race alongside us) to continue the efforts to raise funds that will hopefully find a cure for this type of cancer.
Thank you for checking out our page and for joining us in our continued efforts to raise awareness and hope for this cause.
Matthew, Tiffany, Cecilia and James Flanagan
