May 2016’s Brain Tumor Awareness Month is upon us. While it is important to raise awareness, we know that spreading the word is more powerful when we take action. So here’s events that we’re planning, or happily participating in, and we’d like you to join us.
Read what we have planned below:
Our annual lobbying day is on May 2-3. Over 290 advocates are coming from 39 states and Puerto Rico to lobby Congress on the issues facing the brain tumor community. Check out this page to learn more and how you can help in your own local area.
Have you been a part of the #btsmchat on Twitter before? Join hundreds of brain tumor survivors and caregivers online for the community chat on May 1, 9pm EST/ 6pm PST. We’ll be the guest moderators where we will discuss resources, advice from other survivors, Brain Tumor Awareness Month, and more.
Webinar: Resources you can use
Are you recently diagnosed? Are you looking for resources, tools and trials? Join us in May 25 at 12pm EST for a webinar with the NBTS staff to go over useful information, resources and other means of support for the brain tumor community.
