THE STORY:

B CURED wrote -

B*CURED funds vital brain cancer research. We do it because many of us lost a parent, a spouse, or a beloved friend to this devastating disease. Every day 550 people in the US will be diagnosed with a brain tumor and because there are 120 different types and because it is the brain, it can be complicated to treat.  Survival rates from brain cancer are depressingly low.

B*CURED aims to change this story. We provide grants to innovative scientific research at leading medical institutions like Memorial Sloan-Kettering, Yale, Columbia, Mass General, and more; five research grants to date in our 5 year existence. We bring more brain power to the fight against brain cancer.

As for awareness, nobody likes to talk about c.a.n.c.e.r, but patients and their families must have support on their side and the public must know how they can help. So we keep talking, tweeting, posting and organizing events like our B*Active Athletic challenges. We are a 100% volunteer organization so all donations go directly to the cause.

Where could we be in the short run? Look at the success of the breast and prostate cancer models. Aggressive awareness and research funding campaigns have led to early detection and an array of treatment options. We can do this for brain cancer.  We can and must decrease the toll of this devastating disease.

Our B*CURED B*Active Athletes are dedicating their athletic and fundraising talents to get the word out and to fund more critical brain cancer research. They are awesome so please support them generously! Visit us at www.bcured.org - Debbie and Melissa, B*CURED Founders
