Highland Village residents, Jeff and Dawn Johnson, will be raising funds for the 9th annual Dallas-Fort Worth Brain Tumor Walk on November 8th. Their daughter, Trisha Johnson Mayrack has served as captain of their team, Making Lemonade, since 2009 and has raised over $40,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society.

The Johnson family lost their son Jason to brain cancer in 2006. After losing her brother, Trisha became an advocate for raising awareness of the disease, as well as a top fundraiser for the DFW Brain Tumor Walk. To date, Making Lemonade has raised $15,250 for the walk this year, and hopes to exceed their 2014 goal of $20,000.

The Dallas-Fort Worth Brain Tumor Walk connects brain tumor survivors, patients, family members, caregivers, and friends for an inspiring, family-friendly fundraising walk. Proceeds raised at the event go toward funding critical brain tumor research and raising vital awareness of the disease.

Please consider joining the National Brain Tumor Society on November 8 from 8 to 11 a.m. at Trinity Park in Fort Worth, Texas. Register to participate or form a team at: www.BrainTumorWalk.org/DFW.
