Net proceeds will benefit the American Brain Tumor Association
In March of 2008, Steve Bolser was diagnosed with malignant brain tumors.
After a courageous battle, Steve passed away on March 14, 2009. He was only
56 years old. Steve was a loving husband, father and brother, a dedicated
educator and a one of a kind friend. He touched the lives of many people.
Brain tumors are progressive, non-discriminatory and don’t care how much
the victim is loved or needed by their families and extended families. An
estimated 66, 290 new cases of brain tumors will be diagnosed in the United
States in 2013. Because brain tumors are located at the control center for
thought, emotion and movement, their effects on an individual’s physical and
cognitive abilities can be devastating. Progress has been made, but there is
still so much that is not known. Your help can really make a difference.
It is in celebration of Steve’s life and amazing spirit that we are driven to
fight for a cure. In the last three years, we have raised over $36,000.00.
With your support we will honor those who have lost their lives to brain cancer
and help others who continue to battle this aggressive disease.
The mission of the American Brain Tumor Association is to advance the
understanding and treatment of brain tumors with the goals of improving,
extending and, ultimately, saving the lives of those impacted by a brain tumor
They do this through interactions and engagements with brain tumor patients
and their families, collaborations with allied groups and organizations, and the
funding of brain tumor research.
