Who we are:
In 2001, 29 year old Brad Kaminsky passed away after a long fight with brain cancer. Before he died, Brad’s family and friends promised him that they would never stop fighting for a cure for cancer, and that fight continues today with the 16th annual SuperHeroes of Hope Race. Since 2001, the Brad Kaminsky Foundation has donated over one million dollars to cancer research. The foundation is run by Brad’s sister, Lisa Millar. Lisa continues her brother’s fight every day by helping those impacted and organizing events all over the country. Lisa has received numerous awards and recognitions for her tireless contributions to the field of cancer research, but her most important achievement is keeping her promise to her brother.

More about Brain Tumors:
According to the Nation Brain Tumor Society, an estimated 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and approximately 88,970 more will be diagnosed in 2023. Brain tumors can be deadly, significantly impact quality of life, and change everything for a patient and their loved ones. They do not discriminate, inflicting men, women, and children of all races and ethnicities. Brain tumors are the leading cause of solid tumor death in children of all ages. Brain tumors are the leading cause of death in men under the age of thirty-nine. Twenty percent (20%) of all cancers will spread to the brain. Due to the location of these tumors most patients experience a loss in their ability to move, speak, see, hear or breathe.
