Racing for a Cure: Charlotte folks raise funds for brain tumor research

Posted: Updated:
Charlotte, N.C. (WJZY) -- Two women run. One has tears of joy, the other tears of sorrow.

The National Brain Tumor Society held its inaugural event on Saturday: A walk/run to raise money for research to find a cure.

We spoke with two women at the race. One woman lost her husband less than a month ago to a brain tumor. She came to the race with friends and family to support research for a cure.

The other woman we spoke with is a three-year survivor of a brain tumor. She is healthy and getting stronger each day.

The National Brain Tumor Society says nearly 700,000 people in the U.S. have a brain tumor. Many times the tumors go undetected for years.

According to the organization, brain tumors have more phycological, personality, and physical effects then other forms of cancer.
