Brain Tumor Patient Care Fund


In December 2006 Sue Craig was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. After treatment with surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, she said she “enjoyed 12 months before getting a report of cancer recurrence.” There was no known cure for the type of tumor Mrs. Craig had, but she said she was sustained by her personal belief that “I’m not dying of cancer, I’m living with it!”

Mrs. Craig died on Oct. 13, 2008, at the age of 72.

Treating brain tumors is expensive, and some of the newest drugs are not covered by insurance. One of Mrs. Craig’s legacies, the Brain Tumor Patient Care Fund, seeks to provide financial assistance to patients who cannot afford the treatments they need.

Mrs. Craig, who is survived by her husband and three adult children, was a group project manager at Procter & Gamble. After retiring in 1993, she devoted herself to innumerable causes, including the Christ Presbyterian Church, the Linus Project and the Clermont County League of Women Voters.
