How and why the Walk Started. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 The Walk is three weeks away! If you haven't registered, click here. BELOW LEFT: PARTICIPANTS FROM THE FIRST WALK IN 2008. BELOW RIGHT: THE WALK'S STARTING LINE IN 2014. THE WALK BEGAN IN 2007 AS A LABOR OF LOVE, AND I'M PROUD TO SAY IT REMAINS THAT WAY. Eight years ago I found that I knew four people who were diagnosed with brain cancer: a neighbor, a high school friend, a close family friend, and a work colleague from Northwestern Mutual. My colleague Ruth Ross was a patient of what is now known as the Ben & Catherine Ivy Cent for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at Swedish Medical Center, where she was treated by Dr. Greg Foltz. I found that Dr. Foltz and I shared a common interest in creating a community event for brain cancer. The Seattle Brain Cancer Walk, or "Cranium Crusade," was created in 2008. Our goal was to bring patients and their families and friends together on one day to support those dealing with the disease.
