Hi guys!  One of my most favorite things to do under my leadership of the EndBrainCancer Initiative is to talk directly to patients with brain cancer and to hear first hand, “their story” and to “see” with my own eyes as well as to “hear” with my own ears how they IMPACT others simply by the way they are living with and fighting their brain tumor. I see such amazing Courage and Inspiration every day from patients with brain cancer and now, I want to meet them and share their stories with all of you and pick one of them to honor at this year’s EBCI National “HOPE” Award.

Due to COVID-19, our National “HOPE” Award, sponsored by www.Novocure.com, was not presented in May like it usually is during our annual “Brains Matter” Education, Awareness & ACTION Event as we had to reschedule this event to July 30th.  Now, also due to COVID-19, this event is now cancelled but NOT our National “HOPE” Award Initiative!  WE ARE GOING FORWARD WITH THIS AWARD COME LOW OR HIGH WATER! We are seeking nominations for this award and now, with the launch of my weekly “Having a Say” Zoom Video Meeting Series, I can’t wait to have some of you share more about the person you are nominating with me and to tell me exactly why the person you are nominating so, totally deserves this award.  I can’t wait to talk to you!

So, my ask from you is to #1 submit your nomination form and photos of nominee at this link:https://endbraincancer.org/national-hope-award/

And, #2, sign up for my weekly “Having a Say” Zoom Video Meeting to tell me all about the person you are nominating, their story and why they are so very deserving of this award & recognition.  Sign Up Now At: https://lnkd.in/gU7BJJ2

I am looking forward to reading your nomination applications and am looking forward to “seeing” some of you this Thursday via our Zoom Video meeting.  Cheers!
