Miles for Hope Walk in Clearwater – September 24


Team Kick Cancer’s A.S.S.
(Alexandria/Stephanie/Stephen)


With great love and pride we are once again supporting the awareness of Brain Tumors. We come to you today requesting support by way of donations and participants for team Kick Cancer’s A.S.S. and specifically the amazing survivors Alexandria Gunnels and Stephanie Moore in loving memory of Stephen Thompson in Clearwater, Florida on Saturday September 24th, 2011.

Alexandria Gunnels, young and vibrant, has recently been diagnosed with grade 3 brain cancer. She is so full of love, her desire for life and is adamant about beating the recent diagnosis.

Stephanie Moore, 6 year survivor and mother of 4, continues to fight everyday with a positive attitude, will to survive and support of everyone who loves her dearly. Stephanie had tears of joy for our last walk with MilesforHope.org in September 2010 and I suspect the waterworks will return with this campaign.

Stephen Thompson was 48 years old when he was stricken with Glioblastoma also know as GBM a form of brain cancer. He was diagnosed in November 2009 he died January 7, 2010 he was a healthy hard working person with no indication how his life and those that loved him would change so quickly. The doctors indicated GBM is the most aggressive form of brain cancer. It strikes without warning, they told me this affects all ages and as far as they know at this time you can not prevent brain cancer thats why it is so important to find a cure. Don’t wait until someone you know or love is diagnosed with brain cancer help support research with a donation of any size. Your help is needed to find a cure.

With your support you will be aiding in the research of brain tumors, supporting Alex’s dreams, enhancing Stephanie’s will power, remembering Stephen and furthering the awareness of this cause.

Share the love and support Kick Cancer’s A.S.S. today!

Join Alexandria Gunnels, Jennifer Dokken, Paul Thompson and all the supporters in Clearwater, Florida.

Miles for Hope’s Mission

Miles for Hope is dedicated to raising awareness, funding of cutting edge brain tumor research and clinical trials and to providing travel assistance to qualified patients. Through our work, we intend on finding not only treatments that provide a better quality of life for those suffering with brain cancer, but to find a cure for it.

Current Project MFH is Funding:

We are currently expanding a brain tumor vaccine trial to include Grade II brain tumor patients as well as pediatric Patients. As soon as the funds are raised, the application with FDA will be revised to include Grade II Tumors and Pediatric Patients.

The brain tumor vaccine is designed to trigger the immune system to kill off any residual tumor cells remaining from surgery and chemo. The results of the initial trials have been amazing, and have extended the time to progression of this disease by 3 1/2 times!

MFH’S goal is to raise $ 130,000 by the end of 2011 to open this trial.  This trial could directly affect Alex’s further treatments as we hope to get her in to the pediatric trial for the tumor vaccine once she is done with her current clinical trial

Brain cancer is now the leading cause of solid tumor death in children under 20.  As Alex always says, that is just a statistic and she won’t be part if it!  Please help us in supporting Alex in her fight by walking with us in September and raising money for Miles For Hope!
