I am proud to serve on the Walk for the Mind committee in honor of my brother Mark Linder. Creating the Walk and building a community of support for survivors was Mark’s passion. For over a decade the Walk has grown exponentially because of the team he built, their passion and their commitment to raising awareness, community and support then funneling that support into local research and care.
In 2018, I joined the committee to honor my brother but also in honor and support of friends and co-workers that have also been impacted by brain tumors/brain cancer. Prior to my brother's diagnosis, I did not know anyone that had been impacted by a brain tumor. Since then, I have had dear friends, their families, mentors and co-workers impacted by various types of brain tumors/brain cancer. It is my utmost honor to serve as the the chair of the Walk for the Mind in honor and support of every brain tumor warrior.
It is now my mission to honor and support every warrior, to provide support for families and loved ones impacted and to always remember those that have fought so courageously and are not longer with us.
