From the Chicago Tribune:

Local resident and 9-year survivor of brain cancer (grade three anaplastic astrocytoma), Michelle “Shelle” Albrecht, is being honored by Voices Against Brain Cancer at the upcoming second annual Join the Voices! Chicago Run/ Walk on Sunday, May 4th. Shelle is receiving the Courage Award at the event to honor her survival and on-going strides to help and support others touched by brain cancer, as she was.

Throughout Shell’s journey, she has come in contact with many important care givers that she now refers to as the “the dynamic duo”. One part of that duo is Dr. Richard W. Byrne of Rush University Medical Center, who is also being honored at the upcoming event with the 2014 Gary Lichtenstein Humanitarian Award.

Dr. David M. Frim from the University of Chicago will also be honored by receiving the second Gary Lichtenstein Humanitarian Award from Voices Against Brain Cancer during the Foundation’s 2nd Annual “Join the Voices! Chicago Run/Walk.” Both doctors are being recognized for their continued efforts to help raise brain cancer and brain tumor awareness, as well as the extraordinary care that they offer to all of their patients.
