It’s Your Fight, It’s OUR Fight
May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month. All month long we want you to help spread awareness about brain tumor facts, share your knowledge, and help raise the call for new research and better treatments. To help, we invite you to connect with other brain tumor patients, survivors, caregivers, and community advocates by participating in one or all of our activities.

We will be participating in the #BTSM Tweet chat on Sunday, May 3 at 10PM ET/ 7PM PT. The theme will be Brain Tumor Awareness Month. Our Digital Communications Manager, Steven LaFond will be providing useful links to resources, answering questions, and detailing the ways people can get involved in May. The #BTSM chats are run BY members of the brain tumor community and they’re a great resource for the newly diagnosed, people in remote areas, as well as the rest of us.
Share Our Infosnaps and show your support for the cause.
Throughout the month of May, we will be releasing Infosnaps with brain tumor facts that you can share on social media, as well as links to information and resources. Remember to follow the #BTAM on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook to see posts from all over the country. You can also download this icon and replace your profile picture for the month of May:
Head to the Hill and Congressional Call-in Day
Hundreds of advocates are going with us to Head to the Hill in Washington, DC for our annual advocacy event. Head To The Hill has become a powerful vehicle to ensure the voice of the brain tumor community is being heard on Capitol Hill.
We hope you will be able to share this experience with us in 2015!
Can’t make it to DC? Your voice still has impact May 5th! Join the congressional call-in day May 5th to ask policymakers to support important legislative issues.
