In loving memory of the late Hannah Dashiell
The Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk was the inspiration of Hannah Dashiell, whose grandfather Jerry Jerowski, died of brain cancer in 2007. Hannah did not get to see her dream to completion. In early January 2014, a tragic car accident took Hannah’s life. Her fellow classmates, family friends, and members of the community have taken it upon themselves to see Hannah’s dream brought to completion. The 2017 walk is a tribute to Hannah’s life and an honor to her family. Part of Hannah’s vision for the Bellingham Walk is that it would become an annual event for the city of Bellingham. It is our hope, too, that this walk would continue to be a tribute to Hannah and her family, a service to the community of Bellingham, and an event to support the research to find a CURE.
Supporting the Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk and Hannah’s Vision
When you support the BBCW and Hannah’s vision, you make a substantial impact on those who are diagnosed with brain tumors. 80% of brain tumor patients are not treated at a brain tumor institute and or a brain tumor specialist; often times not receiving clinical trials as first treatment. Gifts given to the Bellingham Brain Cancer Walk directly support the EndBrainCancer Initiative’s patient navigator positions, resources needed at the call center, brain tumor disease education and awareness, and patient advocacy at the policy level.
This year's Walk will include a BEER GARDEN featuring craft beers from Boundary Bay Brewery.
