The JoJo Patel fund aims to raise money to fight brain cancer for those who cannot afford to do it alone.

My mother-in-law (Jyotika Patel) was diagnosed in November 2011 with brain cancer and as she battles this vicious disease each and every day it makes me take notice the strength, resilience and courageousness of the human spirit. She, along with so many others suffering, is an inspiration to all as she wakes up each day with her boxing gloves on, head held high and an immense will to live. She is an incredible woman that I have been blessed to have in my life and I want to fight my hardest to keep her right here with us for as long as I possibly can.

Everyone deserves a chance to live out their lives to their fullest potential and although incurable, brain cancer can be managed so those who suffer from it are able to maintain a sense of normalcy. The advancement in treatment and care is solely thanks to the research funded by charity events, fundraisers, organizations all over the globe that invest time, money and endless resources into fighting the good, long fight and ordinary people like you and I who are willing to put our best foot forward to help.

We all may be healthy and cancer free, but many of those whom we love so dearly are or were not as lucky. For them I say we take a stand and start fighting back.

So please, come join the fight!
