Donate to Johanna She'd do it for youdonate pretty please!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated to Johanna's Brain so far. You'd be amazed at how much it costs to fight a brain tumor. Those little rascals are expensive, and unfortunately resilient. In fact she is still paying for her brain surgery last September.

Johanna, her parents, cousin and friends from Portland to Boston are training for the Twin Cities Marathon this October. Originally designed as a celebration at the end of a year of Chemo (yes, this is Johanna's idea of celebrating) Johanna signed up with many friends and family members to run TCM.

Little did she know when she registered that the tumor would be back and her symptoms would prevent her from returning to work. Now in addition to medical expenses, Johanna also has her daily living expenses to consider.

The entry fee for TCM is $125. Would you pay $125 to NOT run a marathon? Help Johanna with her medical expesnes by becoming a "virtual marathoner". If a marathon is too far for you, what about a 10 miler, 10K or 5K.

Suggested donations:

  • Marathon supporter: $125
  • 10 mile supporter: $75
  • 10K supporter: $50
  • 5K supporter: $25
  • 1 mile: $10

Let's see how many miles of support we can get for Johanna. Anything over $125 and you are an "ultra supporter".
