A Letter from Suzy's son, Andrew Esstman


Shortly after my mom was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2004, she took on a powerful mission:to find a cure. Her goal was ambitious, but she believed that to achieve BIG, you had to dream BIG.  She foundedSuzy Esstman's Walk On Sunshineto not only raise money for brain tumor research, but incorporate her passions of community engagement, healthy living and having fun.


Instead of succumbing to the adversity, she maintained a positive attitude and focused her energy on improving the lives of everyone she knew personally and even those she did not, including other brain tumor patients.  My mom inspired both me and our community to be grateful for every day, and to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.


Despite her positive spirit and strong will, my mother lost her battle with the brain tumor in the summer of 2007.  But that did not stop our friends and family from continuing to raise money to support brain tumor research.  Since its inception seven years ago,Suzy Esstman's Walk On Sunshinehas raised over $130,000 for Hadassah Medical Organization's Neuro-Oncology Unit, where researchers are partnering with institutions around the world, including Saint Louis University Hospital, to conduct cutting-edge brain tumor research.  We have helped fund major breakthroughs, such as the ability to diagnose and track brain cancer through blood-born DNA, as well as the development of an inhibitor which reduces tumor cells' resistance to chemotherapy.


In order to carry on Suzy's fight and fulfill her vision, we need your help!With your support, we can take another step closer to finding a cure for brain tumors!  


Thank you in advance for your continued kindness and giving.  I am so grateful for your efforts in helping me continue my mom's legacy, and I look forward to walking with you on June 2!
