Brain Tumor Awareness Month

The Facts:
  • Brain tumors strike men, women, and children of any race, and at any age.
  • Brain tumors are the second leading cause of cancer-related death in children under 20.
  • Over 688,000 Americans are living with a primary brain tumor. Each year, over 66,000 people are diagnosed with primary malignant and non-malignant tumors.
  • More so than any other cancer, brain tumors can have life-altering psychological, cognitive, behavioral, and physical effects.
  • There is hope. Scientists and researchers are more poised than ever to understand brain tumors, develop treatments, and find cures.
