Be Brave for Life

BE BRAVE FOR LIFE was formed in 2015.

In the past five years founder and junior board member, Riley Callen, has undergone 3 craniotomies to remove two brainstem based tumors.

OUR MISSION is to inform, support and improve the lives of individuals affected by benign brain tumors and drive research for a cure.


2016 Event Sponsors
The Be Brave For Life 2016 Hike-A-Thon will be held in remembrance of Sage Edward Jackson Schermerhorn, born March 31, 2016, died June 25, 2016. An Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) – rare, atypical, and devastating condition took Sage’s short life. Help us to honor his legacy by supporting research and awareness for these types of conditions.
All profits will go towards funding benign brain tumor awareness, research,
and the neurological consequences of their removal.
