Many years ago now I remember receiving the call from my cousin that her 25 year old son had a brain tumor and the valiant fight that followed. We lost him a year later and he would not be the last person I would know that would succumb to a brain tumor in my life. So imagine how pleased am I to tell you about a group whose sole purpose is raising money to fund more research to conquer this for the next person.

Kelly's Cause from what I see at their Facebook page travel around the state putting on fundraisers. Their mission statement reads:

Kelly's Cause for Brain Tumors host events in Maine throughout the year to raise money and awareness for The National Brain Tumor Society for brain tumor research.

If that is something you can get behind you'll get your chance on Sunday at the Boomhouse in Old Town.

The event will run from noon to 4PM and will feature live music and a 50/50 raffle.
