Keep Brain Tumor Research and Treatment Development Moving Forward

The brain tumor community needs breakthroughs — now. We need Congress to provide sustained and adequate funding to make that possible. Together, let’s urge Congress to pass a budget for Fiscal Year (FY24) that prioritizes brain tumor research and treatment development programs.

PCHETA Call to Action 2023

The Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA, S. 2243) was introduced in the Senate for the 118th Congress on July 11, 2023. NBTS invites you to sign our action alert to build co-sponsors for PCHETA and thank senators who are already co-sponsors. Taking action can help position PCHETA with strong bipartisan support before the end of the year.

Stop the Wait Act

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is an important safety net for people with disabilities. For brain tumor patients, who may have to leave their jobs and lose income and job-based health insurance as a result, these earned benefits can provide a lifeline during an uncertain and frightening time. Congress must pass the Stop the Wait Act (H.R. 6583 / S. 3575) to ensure brain tumor patients and other patients with urgent financial and medical needs get the SSDI and Medicare benefits they have earned.
