Episode 5: There’s No End of Remembering with Matt Anthony

Today’s guest, Matt Anthony, is the driving force behind the Head for the Cure Foundation, which is the parent organization of this publication. Matt founded Head For The Cure 19 years ago, after his brother Chris was diagnosed with GBM. Upon his passing, he and Matt made a promise to each other: “To keep the fight going, and help all those that are affected by brain cancer.” Matt kept that promise and then some. To date, Head For the Cure has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of research, further clinical trials, and patient resources and supports. There 5K walks and runs have become a beacon of hope and endurance. They provide these events in more than 30 states across the country.
