Phoenix, AZ (PressExposure) March 24, 2014 -- Johnson Larsen Family Dentistry in Gilbert, Arizona, announces a 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, March 29 to benefit Travis Williams and his family, as he recovers from brain surgery and battles cancer. Friends of Williams' wife, Andrea, are organizing the event. Andrea is a dental hygienist at Johnson Larsen Family Dentistry.
Travis is a loving father and has been married to his high school sweetheart, Andrea, for 19 years. In May 2008, at the age of 34, he was diagnosed with a brain stem tumor. Since his diagnosis, he has undergone three brain surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.
Travis' most recent surgery took a major toll and he continues to slowly recuperate. He is learning to eat, walk on his own, or use fine motor skills to care for himself. Due to the nature of his recovery Travis is unable to work. Johnson Larsen Family Dentistry hopes to ease some of the family's emotional and financial stress by promoting this fundraising event.
