A Spokane woman's personal crusade to raise awareness about brain tumors has turned into a successful fun walk/run set for this Saturday.
In 2008, Joan Ambriz was diagnosed with a non-cancerous brain tumor.
Soon after she was diagnosed she underwent a 16 hour surgery to remove the mass.
The devastating experience inspired Ambriz to raise awareness about brain tumors- a condition affecting nearly 200,000 people every year in our country.
In 2009, Ambriz started Joggn' for the Noggn' a 3K fun run/walk at Mission park and raised $8,000 dollars.<
