Ever since Borgans dragged Main Street on Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012, it is now becoming a monthly occurrence.
The first Saturday of every month, residents will drag Main, not only for a good time, but for amazing causes. This Saturday’s donations will go towards Chelsea Brantwein and her family to help them financially. This 15-year-old Borgan, Chelsea Brantwein, was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Brain Cancer.
Glioblastoma (GBM) is a type of primary malignant brain tumor. Glioblastoma is also known as grade 4 (IV) astrocytoma or Glioblastoma multiforme. It is the most frequent brain tumor comprising about a quarter of all primary brain tumors diagnosed in the United States. Glioblastoma is life-threatening.
Brantwein has recently been taken off all treatment and transferred to BSA Hospice with little to no chances for the tumor to not take over her life.
During the drag of Main Street, locals will be accepting donations for the family. All those attending are encouraged to wear blue (Chelsea’s favorite color) and have gray (brain cancer awareness) on their vehicles in support. An account has been set up for the Brantweins at Pantex Federal Credit Union under her mother Tami Brantwein’s name.
So rev up your engines and drag Main for the good old times, remake what used to the ideal thing to do in Borger, and help a friendly Borgan in need.
