Go Team Numerical Defiance 2021!
To All of our incredible Family and Friends,
I am participating in the 2021 Virtual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk benefiting brain cancer research right here in the Pacific Northwest. Dr. Cobbs and his amazing team have made such wonderful advances in the fight to cure all brain cancers staring with the Glioblastomas, the most deadly of brain cancers. It is so amazing that ALL of the money raised stays right here to help people in Washington. It is very personal for me and our family. Our son, Eric had surgery to remove an astrocytoma glioma brain tumor in December 2013. We have been walking each year. This will be our eighth walk, second virtual one in our neighborhood. We are so very grateful for the support we have received from you. We value our family and friends who support Eric and other brain cancer patients on their journey. Thank you very much. We just celebrated Eric's 7 years! Yay! His next regularly scheduled MRI is September 2021. We are looking forward to more great news!
We are so proud of you, Eric! You have faced this fight "head on", (no pun intended). Your courage and determination are commendable. Son, you are MY HERO, now and always! I love you!
Last year Eric's Team, Numerical Defiance raised a total of $4,950, without being able to hold our fundraiser auction. These donations were all online. Thank you very much for your continued and generous support of the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk.
This year, we will not be able to hold our 5th Silent auction in our home at least in April as we have always done. Hopefully, we can have it later in the year. Al, my husband, Eric's Dad, and our Team Captain worked very hard procuring so many wonderful things for last year's scheduled auction only to have to cancel it due to Covid. That was very distressing to us. We were almost ready to have it when the floor dropped out on us. However, the good news is: we have a terrific jump on the next one, whenever we are able to hold it.
All money from the silent auctions as well as regular donations go to help fund clinical trials, and find new treatments and eventually cures for this terrible disease called Brain Cancer. None of your donations go personally to any of Eric's medical. Every little bit helps, whether you walk, donate to the team, or donate items for our Silent Auction. We value you and your support more than you will ever know. Thank you for your kindness.
Every person who walks, donates or volunteers is helping make a positive impact on brain cancer research. Thank you so very much for walking and/or donating in the past, you have made a huge difference already. We appreciate you! We know everyone has their own special causes they support. Thank you for supporting this very personal one to us.

Proudly Eric's Mom,
