Welcome to the Team Addison fundraising page!
The Addison Bryan Foundation has made it their mission to raise awareness and advocate for better treatments for Childhood Cancer, particularly pediatric brain cancer. The Angels Among Us Walk supports the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center at Duke Children's Hospital, who focusus primarily on developing innovative and less invasive clinical treatments for children diagnosed with brain tumors.
We are walking this year in honor of our beautiful daughter Addison Carolyn who was diagnosed at 9 weeks old with terminal brain cancer. She was given a mere 5% chance of surviving to 6 months of age. Addison faced her diagnosis and treatment with so much bravery and grace. She endured harsh chemotherapy drugs, dozens of MRI, CT and X-Ray scans, tons of tests and lots of late night emergency room visits. But through everything she hardly ever let on how difficult her journey was and how much pain she endured. Addison survived for an amazing 19 months before she passed away of Valentine's Day 2015.
This walk is one way that we choose to honor our beautiful angel who gave us so much and showed us just how precious life can be. Please join us in honoring Addison by joining Team Addison and walking for pediatric brain cancer or by donating in her honor today. All donations will go directly to developing the next innovative treatment that will potentially save the lives of countless children.
