Bruce Be Gone – My sister’s domination over a brain tumor named Bruce!

Linden and I right before she went in for her brain surgery

In a recent Ice Bucket Challenge video, I said that I would donate $1 for each like that that video got… Well… Let’s just say it got a lot of “Likes”  Ahem… 1736!!!!  Holy Freaking WHAT!!!  You people and your clicking abilities!   Today I made the donation, and it was for a cause that’s more important to me than anything else I’ve ever encountered.

My sister, Linden, was recently diagnosed as having a stage 3 tumor in her head and after having it mostly removed in a surgery, she will be undergoing chemo and radiation to tame the lil’ nectarine sized bugger she so affectionately calls Bruce. Bruce needs to go, baby!  Which is why she has called her campaign, Bruce Be Gone!!!

Linden has a goal of raising a mere $20,000 by September 20th for the Seattle Brain Cancer Walk! Thats NOTHING! We’re gonna crush it!!! The money from these donations will go to the The Ivy Cancer Research Center where they are LITERALLY growing Linden’s tumor in a petri dish (the part they removed, duhh!!!) and testing different vaccinations on it. Pretty cool stuff. Linden is keeping her head high… She’s been the most positive, rainbow puking person one could imagine! Unicorns are jealous of her attitude!!!

If you know linden, and have had one good memory with her I ask that you consider making a donation to her fund raising page right…. over… there! —->>> DONATE NOW!

You can follow the process of her fundraising efforts, HERE

Linden is also starting a video blog where she’ll be posting some pretty badass inspirational content on how to be more awesome as well as updates on her progress.  She’s spent the last few years as a life coach and personal trainer so she know’s a thing or two about motivating people.  ;D  Here is the link to that website: Bruce Be Gone Homepage

Thank you for taking the time to consider all of the above… If you dive into your pockets, please know that I will love you forever and ever and will give you the biggest hug these skinny arms can manage next time I see you!

    My mom had a brain tumor that was diagnosed back in 1999. They were talking then about the future being the ability to grow the tumor and test vaccines on it. Unfortunately that technology wasn’t available for my mom. I am beyond excited that it is here in time for your sister!! BEAT BRUCE!!ReplyCancel
