Gray Matters-– The Wendy J. Pierson Foundation
Be part of the 3rd Annual RUN FOR A REASON fundraising event for this newly formed, non-profit foundation in memory of local business owner Wendy Pierson, who lost her battle with brain cancer in 2009. Brain tumors are the leading solid tumor cancer killer of children under the age of 20, are the second highest cause of cancer deaths in adult males and the fifth leading cause of cancer deaths in adult females, ages 20-39. Brain cancer does not discriminate against age, gender, ethnicity, or overall state of health, and has an extremely poor survival rate. Treatments have seen little progress in the last 25 years, largely due to the gross under funding of research. It is for these reasons that the Wendy J. Pierson Foundation for Brain Cancer Research was formed. We look to you for support in this grassroots movement so that we may help ensure that there is hope for every diagnosis. Thank you for your consideration and support. GRAY MATTERS!
