(WBNG) -- StacheStrong is a nonprofit that's devoted to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research and is this week's winner of Southern Tier Tuesdays two thousand dollar grant from Upstate Shredding.
GJ Gerner was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme, also known as GBM, which is a devastating brain cancer that typically results in death in the first fifteen months after diagnosis. GJ fought GBM for 25 months, but it ultimately took his life. Since GJ's diagnosis and his passing, his family, friends and many others continue to remember him through StacheStrong.
