Team BTF is proud to once again be participating in the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 1, 2015!
The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) is a not for profit organization that guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor.
Brain tumors do not discriminate. They occur across the board without any distinctions of age, gender, socio-economic status or ethnicity.
* Today, more than 600,000 Americans will be diagnosed with a brain or central nervous system tumor.
* Another 900,000 Americans are living with brain tumors that have yet to be detected.
* It is estimated over 14,000 deaths are expected to occur this year due to brain tumors.
Possibly half of all brain tumor patients could have their tumors successfully removed if they were detected early, before physical symptoms become apparent. Early detection and complete removal remain the best known methods of treating deadly tumor growth.
PLEASE SUPPORT TEAM BTF
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE FIGHT AGAINST BRAIN TUMORS
Funds raised will go directly to the expansion of BTF's Road to Early Detection campaign -- a Six City Program that provides free mobile MRI brain scans across the nation.
EARLY DETECTION + RESEARCH = CURE
