My name is Vicki Rocke. I have been involved with the Mark Linder Walk since 2016.
My brother, James Meismer, fought bravely a glioblastoma. I was introduced to the effects of this deadly disease throughout his journey. James throughout his life gave love, effort and time to various causes. I knew I had to give something back to a great cause and help others.
I started by attending the Mark Linder Walk for the Mind. I walked for my brother. My eyes were opened at how many people, young and old, are affected by this disease. It was such a great experience knowing I wasn’t alone. I remember the balloons red for the survivors and white for those who have fought. My next step was volunteering with the tshirt committee and donating to the auction.
As the years have passed, I am on the executive board, met amazing surgeons, toured laboratories, and met amazing people…warriors of this disease.
