  1. We at the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation are so impressed with the students at Shadow Mountain High School and their SSBTR club. Brain tumors used to be a disease of elderly men, but we have been appalled by the increasing numbers of young people who are affected. Thank you for increasing awareness and fighting for the cure. You are wonderful!
