California Closets: Supporting the Critical Work of the National Brain Tumor Society while Honoring One of Their Own

On a brilliant, sunny morning in Phoenix, thousands turned out to join the fight against brain tumors at the Phoenix Brain Tumor Walk. Nearly 70,000 Americans are living with a brain tumor today, and the National Brain Tumor Society is working tirelessly to influence and fund research and groundbreaking discoveries and programs.

The Phoenix event was special to the team at California Closets, as one of their beloved design consultants has been receiving treatment for a brain tumor since August. David Slivinski was diagnosed just days after his 40th birthday. David, who joined his colleagues at the Walk, was met with a special message at the finish line where he saw a sign created by the National Brain Tumor Society that read, “In Honor of David Slivinski.”

David continues to inspire all of us who have read his story or followed his blog with his positive attitude and appreciation of all the good things in life.  

California Closets: Phoenix Team to Walk in Honor of One of their Own

On December 7, members of California Closets Phoenix will be participating in the Phoenix Brain Tumor Walk to honor one of their own, designer David Slivinski.

David was diagnosed with a brain tumor earlier this year. It came as a shock to the entire team, David included, and they wanted to do something as a team that would support him, as well as others dealing with a similar diagnosis.

The National Brain Tumor Society presents the 2019 Phoenix Brain Tumor Walk as an opportunity for individuals and teams to support, honor, and remember loved ones, as well as connect with other supporters to raise awareness for the disease that affects more than 700,000 Americans annually.

To date, 12 California Closets Phoenix team members have registered for this 5K, with a minimum team fundraising goal of $1,000.

The event will be held behind Memorial Hall at the National Brain Tumor Society, 300 E Indian School Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85014.

Thank you to the entire California Closets Phoenix team for supporting their team member in this way.  We encourage all who can to join and support this worthy cause.
