In Memory Of raises money for brain cancer research and brings brain cancer awareness to the public. It is not often thought about but it is just as important as any other cancer. Many people who fall ill to some form of brain cancer, often do not have a survival rate of more than 5 years. We want to change that!
We were formed by loved ones who have passed on due to cancer. The person who inspired us to start raising money and awareness for brain cancer, happened to be my mom, Karen Cramer, who passed away at age 48 from a 2 year fight with Glioblastoma Multiforme, Stage IV, a very aggressive form of brain cancer.
She was 18 days shy from her 2 year diagnosis and just 1 month, 4 days away from her 49th birthday. She had a long treatment plan of radiation and chemotherapy, to which she had very few breaks in between treatments. For the most part, the treatments let her have a good 20 months of fighting. The last 3 months of her condition made it very hard for her to do anything for herself. She fought 'til the end and we hope to bring more awareness to others about brain cancer.
Although our main focus is brain cancer, we are not only raising awareness in the memory of my mom but for anyone who has lost a loved one to any form of cancer. We want to remember them all, no matter what kind of cancer took them.
How Can You Help?
We are currently looking for donations to help with the cost of becoming a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Any donations given prior to the tax-exempt status are not tax-deductible. Any donation amount will be helpful. The process of becoming tax-exempt takes time and legal council, which can be costly, along with the application fee to the IRS. Thank you in advance for helping us grow!
