Keeping the Faith

Martye’s story began a year ago. While on a phone call with her sister, she wasn’t making any sense, which led to visiting urgent care and then the ER. At midnight, we received the results of the MRI, she had a mass in her brain. After a biopsy confirmed GBM, Martye underwent radiation and chemotherapy. In January she started using the Optune device and in the picture she carried it the whole 5K yesterday through our neighborhood. The coolbreeze hat with the solar panel powered fan keeps her Optune unit cool in the heat. Martye has been a real inspiration, battling through two surgeries, chemotherapy and now carrying the Optune device with her wherever she goes. She continues to be positive, focused on living her life to the fullest.
