Tampa Bay area family runs 5K for toddler with brain cancer

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — The Breakthrough for Brain Tumors 5K was set to kick off at Al Lopez Park in Tampa at 8 a.m. Saturday.

As of 6 a.m., the Tampa Bay community raised $96,000 for the American Brian Tumor Association.

Because of donations from the Tampa Bay community, the ABTA has been able to fund more than $34 million in critical research grants throughout the years.

The money goes to helping people like Callie Stillwell.

The Seminole toddler is staying resilient following a recent brain cancer diagnosis.

Two weeks after Callie’s second birthday, scans found a golf ball-sized tumor in her brain.

She is set for her final radiation treatment at Orlando Health Cancer Institute Tuesday.
