Briana Strong: Support Briana in her Cancer Fight!

In January 2020, Briana was a first year (straight A) college student at Florida State University studying psychology. She began experiencing severe headaches shortly after returning to campus from her winter break. Unfortunately, following a late night trip to the ER, it was found that Briana had a large, grade IV cancerous tumor in her thalamus.

Since her diagnosis, this year has been full of ups and downs. In the summer, Briana completed treatment in Tampa, Florida but found that the tumor had progressed.

After thinking there were no more options, in October, Briana went through a miraculous surgery and was accepted into a clinical trial in Gainesville, Florida. She is currently in the trial and continues to fight!

At 19 years old, she has been fighting for almost a year and has always kept a positive attitude and calm demeanor. She is kind, caring, intelligent, and funny. But most of all...Briana is STRONG. 

She is living with her mom (Christina), dad, and brothers in Lakeland, Florida. This is an ongoing fundraiser to assist with medical and travel costs, living expenses, or any other necessities needed to support her and her family during this difficult time. 

If you are able, we appreciate your support in her fight!
