Run In Memory of Star Jason

If you would like to run in memory of Star Jason, you will select his team when registering and your team t-shirt color is ORANGE. Here's Jason's story.

Jason Dean Strauser was a normal, active 10-year-old when he was diagnosed with a very large, aggressive, malignant brain tumor. Our only son and youngest child, Jason, was only 17 years old when he passed away on Memorial Day, May 30, 2011.  

Jason was in & out of treatments most of the 7 years that he battled cancer. Jason endured radiation twice, almost constant chemotherapy, gamma knife twice and a stem cell transplant. Jason was not able to attend school with his friends. As a matter of fact, he lost many friends because of cancer! Jason braved many, many new medicines that made us cringe because of all the possible long term side effects. The side effects would bring on even more medical issues for our sweet, kind, intelligent, comical, son. It was a constant roller coaster ride that I do not wish on anyone. 

The current drugs used on our children have not been changed for many, many years.  With your help, we can increase pediatric cancer research to obtain better meds and finally put an end to this monster, pediatric cancer! To run In Memory of Star Jason, click here.
