( www.floridabraintumor.com) The need to open clinical trials for adult and pediatric brain tumor patients is paramount to finding a cure to this devastating and too often deadly disease. Brain cancer is the #1 cause of death in children 21 and younger. Gliomas remain very difficult tumors to treat and control. Although some brain tumors may be benign, they can cause plenty of havoc.The majority of brain tumors are mailgnant gliomas. 30% of gliomas are Glioblastoma Multiforme, which carry a very grim prognosis. Standard treatment is still surgery,radiation and chemotherapy. We need more. Much more. The FBTA is dedicated to the continuence of raising awareness or the brain tumor community,offering yearly educational seminars and conferences and research. It is critical for us to get funding to brain tumor centers in Florida. They must have funds to open trials that will finally end this miserable disease. We can't achieve this without your help. The FBTA will be grateful for any support to help us reach our goal. Together we can end the suffering caused by brain tumors. Please remember your donation is 100% tax deductable.
