2010 Courage Award Recipients

What can a voice do? It can soothe, enrage, laugh and heal. It can end wars with its meditative silence or it can be so loud that it can make the earth shake. We plan on using our voices at VABC to ultimately find a cure for brain cancer. How do you want to use your voice? If you would like to post a story or a letter about your own experience with brain cancer, please click here.

Jon B. Kushner “Sometimes when I tell someone what I had to face they might ask me if I had the urge to go skydiving naked or travel the globe. I just tell them, ‘No I just want to live!’ A bucket list is something they make in the movies. In real life you just count your blessings and press on. That’s all anybody can do. Oh, and yoga really really helped me quiet down the ‘noise’ that is fear.”– Jon B. KushnerBrain cancer survivor2010 Courage Award Recipient
