Imagine A Cure Benefit for The Cure Starts Now
Patsy Mercer Georgia Director of CSN

My name is Patsy Mercer and I am the Georgia Director of The Cure Starts Now Foundation.  I am also the director of Imagine A Cure- which does benefits for The Cure Starts Now.  I am the proud parent of 4 healthy children and 4 healthy grandchildren.  My cousin, Brayden Harrell, lost his battle with DIPG on May 27, 2008.  He was only 5 years old.  Because of the wonderful life lessons I learned from Brayden, I decided I had to help find a cure for cancer- not just DIPG  or other forms of children’s cancer, not just brain cancer but all cancers. No children with cancer- no one with cancer- Wouldn’t that be wonderful? 


I am asking you to help me and The Cure Starts Now find a CURE!!! 

We need support, we need sponsors, we need volunteers, and we need partners.  All I ask is that you consider us and if you chose to help us all I ask is that you do what you can to help us raise awareness and funds for research for childhood brain cancer- special concentration  on DIPG.
