For the past 9 years, more than 80 teams continue to participate in our annual Head for the Cure 5K – North Texas. Team BigOsc supports Oscar Loera Jr. in his journey with a Grade 3 Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma and celebrates his 10 YEAR survivorship! Oscar continues to defeat the odds with his determination and spirit! By donating to this event, you are helping fund research and programs to support the brain tumor community.

As we celebrated our 9th year in North Texas on May 4th, Oscar celebrated is 10-year “cancer-versary” with his team, BigOsc! It was an honor to celebrate this special moment with his friends, family, and the HFTC community. Being diagnosed with a brain tumor can be isolating at times but to Oscar, being part of the Head for the Cure family surrounds you with other survivors, memories of members who have died from cancer and friends & families that display their strong love and support. He also relies on work to keep him motivated. Finally, strong supporters, like Shari Nederhoff, continually show compassion and remind us that surviving is easier to do when you have fun events and chances to share your experience with others.
You can still donate to our 9th Annual Head for the Cure 5K- North Texas run/walk and help us defeat brain cancer step by step!
