THE STORY:

BRAIN TUMOR FOUNDATION wrote -

Brain Tumors Don’t Discriminate!

Brain tumors are real and there’s a good chance it will happen to someone you know or someone you love in your lifetime. 

-- Mark Ruffalo, Award Winning Actor

The Brain Tumor Foundation (BTF) guides and supports patients and families during the turbulent times when their lives are touched by a brain tumor by offering support groups, medical referrals and informational events.

BTF’s Road to Early Detection campaign was launched to increase public awareness about early detection of brain tumors and the urgent need for brain scan screenings.

With the expanded Sponsor-A-City Tour, BTF is providing free MRI brain scans nationally, in the hope of understanding the relationship between patient factors and brain tumors.  In collaboration with a multidisciplinary research team at Columbia University in New York City, we are gathering key information from these scans that will hopefully help us to better understand the epidemiology of brain tumors – whether it be environmental, genetic or some other still unexamined source. 

* This year, close to 700,000 people in the United States will be diagnosed with a brain or central nervous system tumor.

* Close to 1 million people are living with brain tumors that have yet to be detected.

Please support our runners’ efforts to raise awareness of the need for early detection of brain tumors.  DONATE TODAY!
