Head to the Hill

Tuesday, May 3, 2022

On May 3, 2022, share your story on the Hill and advocate for the federal government to make strategic investments in brain tumor research, improve health care delivery, reduce health disparities, and raise the priority level for our community’s urgent needs.

Advocating for Change

For the last two years, we’ve seen a record number of brain tumor advocates come together to raise their voices. Thanks to a fully virtual setting last year, more advocates than ever from all over the country were able to participate. These virtual meetings demonstrated that effective, meaningful interactions with your members of Congress and their staff are possible even when we can’t be in person.

This year, we will once again virtually advocate for the brain tumor community and affect the lives of hundreds of thousands of Americans living with a brain tumor today, and those who will be diagnosed in the future.

Registration for Head to the Hill 2022 is now closed. If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about the event, please contact us advocacy@braintumor.org.

Join us online by completing our action alert to let your members of Congress know we need increased funding for medical research, and improved Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare benefits for brain tumor patients.
