Voices Against Brain Cancer $100 GC, the result is Topic

This page and this November 17th walk are in memory of my mother, Adrienne Renzetti, who passed away from glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) brain cancer at age 58. This is the third year we are forming Adrienne's Crusaders in her honor. She succumbed to the same type of brain cancer that also took the lives of Gary Carter and Tug McGraw. All donations and walkers (including virtual walkers) are appreciated. Thank you for your support!

All donors' names will be entered in a drawing after the walk for a $100 GC. This was approved by Admin on October 8th.

What is the best way to donate?

No offense, but I always like to check things out before I consider donating.  Where does the money go?

I ask largely because a lot of cancer-oriented charities are really not good at disbursing the money they receive to meaningfully useful places.  The American Cancer Society is not bad, but not a great charity from my perspective.  Susan G. Komen is a money sink, I wouldn't dream of donating any money to them.

Obviously in your case it's not that specific organization, but they're not the only one.  Probably the most visible/famous one that's particularly bad...

The best way to donate is through the site. Sorry I did not respond right away but I have been very busy with my jobs and my kids all summer.

Thanks, Dub. I see you donated on the site already. Thanks in advance to JoCrane, Verynice, and anyone else who will donate.

Dahs, brain cancer is very rare when compared to other cancers, so I don't think VABC is in it for the money. Just my opinion. Still, brain cancer has an extremely low survival rate. My mom actually beat the odds just by living for 5 and a half years with stage 4 GBM. Only about 2 to 4% with that stage make it that far.

I have contacted Admin about awarding a $100 GC to the winner of a raffle that would include every WifS member who donated to my mom's team. I will keep you all updated.

Site is still up. Donations are coming in. Thanks to those of you who donated. Anyone else's contributions are greatly appreciated.

I am still working on the $100 GC from Admin but that has not been confirmed yet.
