About Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

As brain tumors are the leading cause of cancer-related death and the most commonly diagnosed solid cancer in children and adolescents age 19 and younger, the brain tumor community has an enormous stake and voice in Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Learn more about pediatric brain tumors below, including how the National Brain Tumor Society seeks to change that reality and is working to find better treatments and a cure.

Creating Change to Last a Lifetime

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month (CCAM) is a time to recognize, advocate for, and honor children who have been affected by cancer and the families that care for them.

This September, the National Brain Tumor Society will highlight the devastating realities of a brain tumor diagnosis for children and families. We’ll share important progress being made in research to find better treatments and improve survival and quality of life, and to improve health care and support for families facing a pediatric brain tumor diagnosis. Through NBTS, there are opportunities for our community to use the power of philanthropy, advocacy and volunteering to help create change to last a lifetime.
