Here is a message from Aileen Gregory, wife of a long-time friend to ALPFA DC, John Gregory:

My husband, John was diagnosed with brain cancer in October 2012, then diagnosed with Stage IV melanoma in March 2013. John lost his battle to cancer a few months later on June 3, 2013. During John's journey, it was evident that the treatment options available for brain cancer patients were not as advanced as those with Metastatic Melanoma which involved gene targeted therapy and immunotherapy. When discussing treatment options for his brain tumor, we were left with traditional radiation and chemotherapy. Although John did not die of brain cancer, we will continue the fight to find a cure so that others like John will defeat this disease and continue their lives as brain tumor survivors.
In John’s memory, we will continue the fight as Team DC & Team PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). Adison (9) and Alexander (6) will be participating in the race and Adison will again run the 5K in its entirety in memory of her father. Last year, we raised over $37,000 and in the last 2 years have raised over $70,000. Our goal is to hit the $100,000 mark!
