Working with more than 18,000 advocates across all 50 states, our advocacy program is a thriving, active community focused on raising awareness with policymakers about the critical needs of the brain tumor community. Use the tools below to learn more about our advocacy program, explore events, and find brain tumor facts for your state.
Our annual advocacy day, Head to the Hill, takes place each spring and brings advocates from around the country together to let Congress know that the brain tumor community is united and fighting back through public policy.
Every August, advocates across the United States join together to schedule and attend In-District Congressional meetings during Congress’ August Recess. Learn how you can participate in this annual event in your state by visiting our In-District Meetings page. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Today an estimated 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and nearly 89,000 others will be diagnosed this year. We think it’s important for you to know the facts about brain tumors in your state.
