Brain Tumor Foundation Hopeful That Patients' Diagnoses, Quality of Life Will Improve
Date:8/26/2009

WILMINGTON, Del., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- With this morning's passing of Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy from a brain tumor, Wilmington's Christopher Grundner says he feels that it could lead to quicker diagnoses for others affected by the disease and more support for the cause.

In 2005, Grundner established The Kelly Heinz-Grundner Brain Tumor Foundation (KHG) after his wife, Kelly, died from this disease. He left his position as Senior Vice President at JPMorgan Chase to dedicate his life to raising awareness of brain tumors with the goal of bringing the national spotlight to brain tumors and helping people to get diagnosed faster.

Over the last four years, Grundner has raised almost $1 million and has launched a national movement called "Get Your Head In The Game," which is aimed at educating the public and medical professionals about the facts, symptoms and proper diagnosis techniques.

"Sen. Kennedy's valiant fight against this disease gives everyone serving the brain tumor community some hope that it will lead to greater awareness of brain tumors and, with this, potentially some positive outcomes, including people getting diagnosed faster and more people joining the fight," Grundner says. "This cause is where breast cancer was 25 years ago and there is a lot of work still to do."
